Aluminium Resin Powder

I have decided to test using a aluminium filler in resin for my Jupiter and Saturn pieces that I was planning on making out of aluminium. The filler is basically very fine aluminium powder which you mix into the resin at a 1:1 ratio. After the resin has gone off you can buff/ polish the surface to give the piece the exact look of cast aluminium. This saves me having to do an aluminium casts of the pieces and allows me to experiment with this technique. Below is an example images of what it can look like-
