I've just de-molded an initial trial product from a large salad bowl mold I have been working on recently. Although, the resin is still a bit too soft to do the final shaping and finishing, I cleaned it up to do a few photos.

The total time passed now since pouring the epoxy resin is about 4 days and I expect in another couple it should be hard enough to work on. The surface of the resin is already impervious to fingernail denting but with a little force I can push a knife blade into it ... so it does have a little way to go yet.

This is quite a large salad bowl, measuring 39 (15.5") x 33 (13") x 12 (5") cms although the volume is probably best described as medium due to the shape of the form. I have another original form almost ready to start molding which is about the same physical size but much fuller and bigger in volume ... stay tuned for that one.
