Hey all. So my suit is coming along nicely and I started thinking about perhaps making molds to rotocast resin parts. (this is no time soon! Just thinking about it.)
So I was watching James's videos on his YouTube channel. (more details at xrobots.co.uk ) in a comment on the video he said he used approx 45-50 kg of silicon rtv to make his molds. Maybe I'm doing my math wrong. But I get that that equates to 1763 oz. or about 13 gallons.
I'm finding that To buy silicon it's around $100 a gallon... That's $1300 for the silicon to mold iron man!! x_x
Is this about right? Did I do math wrong? Or am I just not finding the right supplier?
Thanks. And btw, James, your tutorials are amazing and very appriciated!
