Larry from Tattoo Royale
I have to admit being pretty pumped up for the upcoming "Toxic Catalyst Resin Invitational" being curated by resin meisters MonstreHero and hosted at our own Super7 this Saturday, August 21st at 6pm. I've found myself picking up more and more resin pieces and adding them to my collection. Are they really even toys? I think they can be. What's the appeal to something that might be basically a statue? There is the DIY garage nature to creating these things that one can find appealing. Almost anyone can create resin figures. Although after seeing what it takes to made one, it seems like a whole lot of work to me. If you can sculp a little bit or even not, you can take your creation and multiply it many times in resin and paint the figures different colors. You can't do that with any other medium. I think resin toys are just as cool as vinyl or die-cast toys and maybe even a bit cooler due to the limited nature of the beast.
