This came off the cape mold today. I hope to use this section to develop some panels to use for the boots.
Next step is to do some tests with differen materials to see how they adhere, behave, etc.
I guess you cannot really tell much from the photo, but this is a decent sized segment of the cape. All of the little micro diamonds are in there. So when I pour material onto it, I will end up with a postive that looks just like the mold of the cape. And THAT is what the material on the boots looks like. I guess you would call it a "female diamond pattern".
