What is VENOM ?
Venom is an all green and black build, with a serious twist.
using PolyMorph plastic, i'll be re-doing the shroud and panels of the case.
Veins will be wrapping themselves around the whole case and internals, these veins will ignite bright green under UV lights.
Think of the upside-down in Stranger Things.
Imagine those roots/veins as green.. Got it? lol
I've got a lot of work ahead of me on this one, i'll also be doing strange things to the tubing, reservoir and fittings.
It's actually very hard to describe, but i got all the design images i need up in my brain lol.

Work is well and truly under way. 

So, i got my polymorph in yesterday and begun working on the shroud + Roots + added a new alien monster thing (in progress) 

Polymorph is ugly to look at in it's raw state, however when painted, it completely changes everything.

I then filled the little caves/holes with UV green paint (dries clear) to give it that extra coolness.

Next up, i begun working on the jaw bones and teeth of the alien monster

I first shaped the teeth, then stuck them onto a curved piece of polymorph as the jaw structure. 

i then tipped each tooth with clear UV green paint

After this, i painted the jaw, and re-attached the teeth

And then under UV light for testing

i do want to show you more, but i can't without breaking some kind of rule i'm under :P 

Check back tomorrow for more details

Interesting start...hmmmm

yeah... I was rushed as i had only 24 hours to do ''something'' for the R6 launch. Last couple of days i've gone back over the rough areas, and re-done them. Shroud etc all looking much smoother. 
Should have a tutorial on polymorph going up tonight :)

Neat! I salvage the ABS veneers of Dell cases for similar uses. Gotta look into this stuff.

Honestly, Polymorph is well worth at least trying. 
it cost me £65 for 5KG of polymorph, the whole shroud and teeth, used about half a KG. 
costing me a total of £6.50

Some progress updates. 
I've been working on the loop, followed by the polymorph. 
Have successfully managed to get the polymorph on the tubing, reservoir and monoblock. 
Will smooth down tomorrow, as it's running late here. 

First an image of the monoblock, and EK's Cryofuel Acid green coolant!

And finally, i'm going back over all the uneven areas, heating them up and re-moulding them all properly.

Looks really weird when it's hot and sticky lol
