Wow! That is amazing! I know working with this stuff is like painting with peanut butter...I am amazed you managed to make scale rows in the peel away method. I may try it too!
I don't know that my method is normal lol. I'm spreading the silicone out thin and smooth on a flat surface and allowing it to fully cure. Then I'm cutting out single layers of my scales and stacking them how I want, attaching the rows together as I go. It's not as tedious as single scaling but it's still pretty bad lol I couldn't think of another way of doing it wit out breaking down and making a mold.
Looks like it is coming along great so far!!
