Gelatinous cube

So a commenter on the Paizo miniatures forum mentioned that he had purchased a “gelatinous cube” mini at a “convention price” of $30.

THIRTY DOLLARS!?!!?

Here’s one I made using clear casting resin and some bits of miniatures I had laying around.

(By the way, this photo was color balanced.)

Of course this doesn’t match a professional cube, but I can make as many as I want!

  1. By the way, I’ve made a couple more Gelatinous cubes in the past few weeks. I’ve made three “medium” sized ones, and one “large” one. I may just go all out and make a whole bunch of them since they are so easy to make…

  2. @SEG, I made a model using an aluminum foil core and a “skin” of Sculpey clay. I sculpted a shape I thought looked sorta dynamic, for a cube, then I baked it in the oven. When it was done I got some silicon mold material (“Smooth-on” was the brand, I think) and I made a mold of it.

    To make a gelatinous cube I clean out the mold (which tore, so if you make one, make at least 1/4 inch thick walls. It still works, but grrrr…) and then pour about 1/3 full with clear casting compound, then put in some skeletal or broken up remains of cheap miniatures, then I fill it the rest of the way up.

    I’ve made three so far. One cracked because I put too much catalyst in the clear resin. But it still worked OK.

    I’ve also made three 1″x1″x1″ versions, so little “baby” gelatinous cubes.

    • awesome 🙂 I tried using the resin and i made it in a silicone ice cube tray… which doesnt unfortunately allow me to make LARGER than the lil baby ones i have. lol
      I will try the mold method you used. I’ll put pics up when done. 🙂 Thanks for the tip
