Hi Neko! I have a question, should I do this piece completely closed in the bottom part or a bit open?

For the piece that goes on top, is one of these two more or less fine? I think I would personally go for the right one. What do you think? (I need to add the width)

More or less better?

I am going to try and make it out of silicon tomorrow! Elena told me it was going to be a bit difficult because the object it too small, but I will try my best so that I can have it out of silicon. Hope you like it. IMG_6298IMG_6297 IMG_6296 IMG_6299IMG_6295 :)Good news!! I found the perfect skin color and the perfect hand with the perfect size hahaha Manuela tannn

First question: not sure, what would you feel more comfortable? For me, just visually, I like the closed version better. However, maybe the open version would be better as it suggests "flexibility" like something you can stretch to adjust to size of your fingers. So because of this, I would probably vote for open version.
Second question: Both of the curves are very similar, but I think they have the same issue, which is that they get concave near the both ends, risking of touching the finger nail below. I would suggest trying to do something like the red shape I sketched below (note my black arrow pointing to "problem areas"):

If Sweep2 command is giving you troubles (forcing you the concave forms) then try to use NetworkSrf - in which case you should actually draw the curve you want to make yourself, in addition to curves you already have for rails and sections.

Hi Neko! I believe the open version is more adaptable to the finger and I don't take the risk that it doesn´t fit in my finger (after 3d printing it). I will try and make the top part better. Thank you for your feedback. :)

Neko

Oh nice, you've printed it already! It would be fantastic if you could spray-paint these in some cool color - but probably you might not have to dry it, with this weather (unless you use hair dryer).

Norma

Cool color such us...? Because for the pictures I want the nails to be in red, and I want contrast between the nails and my object, as it is really small.

Neko

Excellent point! I guess you should keep it white. That means that ideally you would have:
- white object
- red nails + polish
- skin color - now here ideal skin color would be slightly dark-ish, to contrast the white object. see if you can find a model.
- very dark grey background

Norma

For the skin color I have a problem... Because the object is of the size of my fingers (I wanted someone to take the picture of me), and I tried in other people to see If it was fine, but actually my fingers are super thin hahaha :/ Laura´s also fit well in my object, but we are both light skin color. Maybe I can put on my hands some kind of tanning lotion, what do you think?

And for the object, I will keep it white but Im trying to do t also out of silicon to see how does it see.
Thank you for your help :)

Good news > great skin color and very nice hands! :)
