    ANUBIS head Feedback on my molding partline and silicone choice.

    Would love some opinions on my molding process from the think tank. I'm planning on molding this Wed clay sculpt using a brush on silicone. (Hoping to get a very long life out of this mold) Im going to crystal clear it beforehand. As far as my part line goes, I'm thinking of jewel cutting a...

    Robin Mask Molding

    Hey Guys - I have a 3D model and print of Robin's mask from Arkham Knight. I'm looking for the best way to mold and cast a flexible version of the mask to wear as a cosplay. I want to be able to make several copies of the mask because of wear. I'm thinking about molding it out of Vytaflex...

    Fix difficult resin casting problem?

    How would you repair pinholes from bubbles in a casting that are just a mm in diameter but can NOT just be filled with glue or whatever? As you can see in the picture it is not only "holes" but rather missing parts of a thin, protruding line. A 1mm diameter wire, in fact. "Filling" it with a...

    A few questions about urethane molds - clean up, prep & adhesive

    I just successfully pulled my first urethane mold off of the plug and I have a few questions. 1. I used Sharkthane FlexPro 60-20. The plug was 20lb foam painted with primer. Although I waxed the plug and sprayed it with PVA some of the primer still stuck to the urethane. What's the best way...

    Making a Foam Buck for Mold Making

    G'day Makers, I had the opportunity to try something new for a project (I can't reveal the project yet). But for it, I chose to make a cast of the final version. I didn't have any clay (such as Monster Clay), all I had was EVA foam and foam clay. So I took a risk and made a buck from foam/foam...

    Casting detailed object questions

    I'm in the process of making a replica of the Zafiro Anejo bottle topper from Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul. I'm sculpting it out of Sculpey clay, and I planned to bake it, make a mold, cast it in resin and paint it copper, however I'm afraid it would be difficult to remove the topper from...

    Heatproof Moulding Material

    Hi all! Been mask making for a while but recently got into polymer clay and LOVING IT! The one issue I face is well... the face. When I used to make masks I’d pepakura my own files or model and print them using a CAD representation of my head. Not a scan, but a rather accurately sized model. The...

    Basic Mold Making for Detailed Prop

    I'm in Australia and I'm looking for some basic materials for mold making. I've never done mold making before so I want to keep the cost down while I learn about it. I want to make Mazikeen's Karambits from Lucifer, which are pretty detailed. I've considered using Sculpey to create the...

    One Part Molds minor improvement with 3D Printing

    Hey Folks!, maybe this has been tried before maybe it hasnt, but I tried out a new idea this week to use 3D printing to construct the mold wall to minimise silicone waste and also add markings to the silicone mold so you can see how much resin you need in the mold (as every time I write in...

    Do I need a plaster sealer for casting in an UltraCal 30 mold?

    Hello guys, I want to create an UltraCal 30 mold on an Monsterclay model. After that I want to put silicone in there, but I saw in an YouTube video, that you have to put a sealer (mold soap plaster sealer, the link is below) on the walls in the inside of the plaster-mold before starting filling...
