After the successful casting, i had to do some blossom scales with this stuff.
I saw a tutorial that stated a white background would enhance the brightness of the glow,
so i added a thin layer of white casting resin to the glowing layer.
Although its pretty bright, i need to think of something to make it more interesting... just glowing is not cool enough
I strapped the two scales together back to back and powered it up with a flashlight... as you can see it is... bright.
