Hi, lots of threads like this but they are all a bit different.
I've sculpted a small face (Babu Frik) in Fimo / Sculpey. I only used a 2oz package so it's quite a small sculpture.
I'm looking to make a mold using a kit I have Alumilite Silicone, the link is here.

I'm hoping you experts can recommend a casting material for the face. I'd like it to be soft like silicone but paintable with light coats of acrylic washes (I know soft/flexible and acrylic paints aren't a great combination) I also want to be able to punch hair/whiskers into it. I want to avoid silicone since I want to paint with thin layers of acrylic craft paints.... as an example, I have a Cyberman Yoda that is quite stretchy but still holds the acrylic paint very well. Also, I only need a small amount, I'm only making a few casts so I am trying to keep costs at a minimum. Lastly, I live in Canada, so smooth-on products or something off of amazon would be great. Hope someone has a recommendation, thanks.

Check out Psycho Paint- Platinum Silicone Paint Base from Smooth On. Only easy way I know to keep things flexible and convincingly painted. Beautifully done.
