Plant object

I got a 3D printed plant object that I ordered to Shapeways. It's so good finish, I satisfied. Of cource, I can print it with my printer, but adding some support parts to complex object like this, is too hard. But the printer that uses powder type material doesn't need support. It's very useful.

Black pigment

I tried the HT resin and black pigment. For prevent sticking to the PDMS layer, I mixed 25% B9Red, 25% SpotA-GP, and 50% SpotA-HT. 25% B9Red effected perfect. I need B9Red resin without red pigment.

The test of HT type resin. I have a good feeling, sticking to the PDMS layer has gone to occur. I think this color to create something biological is good, however.
I'd like to try next, mixture with B9Red resin(without red pigment).

I got a 'HT(Hard and Tough?)' type resin, and also some color pigments, White and Black. The 'HT' resin is transparent but slight yellow color. I added the White pigment to resin 1%, 2.0g pigment into the 198.0g resin. I feel the the color is  little bit pale. Maybe I need 2% concentration.
After some print tests, I set shorter exposure time, 7.5sec. for each layer, and printing big plant model. I could see the result at tomorrow noon.
