Hi everyone

So as the title says I want to cast some animal skulls in either latex or resin to go with my pred suit and a few other costumes I have in the works BUT I have no idea how to go about making the molds or what to use because of the complex shape

Here are some of the skulls I have that I want to cast

its all about the dividing line and where you would split the mold.
For these skulls you may have to create 2 to 3 part rubber molds plus creating a hard jacket mold that will fit like a 3D puzzle.

Try googling "mold a animal skull"

for doing intricate things like this Smooth-On's Dragonskin is perfect because it can stretch when you have a lot of undercuts. i would fill in some of the deeper holes with clay like in the nasal cavities. you can always drill it out later.
