Injection

I used a small curved tip syringe with some SmoothCast 320 to inject urethane resin between the base of the trophy and the bottom of the gem. Because the gem was waxed with Sonite mold release first, I was able to pop it free of the base once the urethane cured. This means that each base casting will line up perfectly with each gem casting during assembly later on.
