Back to 'Ice' for a sec - the more I think about it the more over complicated my idea feels - possible, but a lot of faff creating the right shaped outer mould to pour the resin into and around the figure.

How about clear acrylic 'Crackle' or 'Krakelee' medium?

It dries clear with a 'cracked porcelain' type effect. Not used it myself but my wife and daughter used to use it for weird art/craft projects. I've 'borrowed' some and am working on a test on a white undercoated blank base at the moment - if that works I'll try it on a gash figure (god knows I've got enough of them :roll: ) and maybe post the result if not too naff.

Thanks. I've never heard of the stuff before, I'll be interested in the results of your experiment. :beer:

Slight bog up on my part - crap pic to follow.
The stuff I used apparently is a two part process - I haven't got stage 2.
So I may go and get some crackle glaze which apparently works on its own - in the meantime I have an ECW figure encased in what looks like - let's be kind - spit.

Oops. :lol:
Did it harden?
Maybe you could claim it's a battlefield haunting ghost and call it ectoplasm?

It is a bit 'ectomplasmy' isn't it?

Looks as if he's been in a Ghostbuster's film.

That's very, er...Interesting. :lol:
A fearsome apparition that will no doubt have the roundheads trembling in their Lobsterpots. :lol:

A for effort. :beer:

I don't know, it was worth a try. Do you think it would have worked if you'd been able to complete the second stage?

Dunno - You'll be pleased to know the goop washed off with warm water and detergent (and a gentle soft brushing). Despite being dry to the touch and apparently quite hard.
Looking at the one shot crackle finish next.
Maybe a more 'appropriate' figure next time? He was the first one that came to hand - I sold most of my 28mm ECW years ago - he's been hanging around lost for years - there's a distinct smug look on his face now.
Can't see him being a frosty superhero however effective the glaze/resin/ cling film.

I'm glad you managed to salvage the figure. :)
