Hi all - I've made a pep based Iron Man helmet from shark's file and I'm attempting to mold the 4 piece helmet. I've failed horribly the first 2 attempts and I think it's the way I'm prepping the pieces for mold since their such odd shapes.

Can anyone out there share advice, or even more helpful, pictures of how they prepped their multiple piece helmets for mold? I've received some advice via PM to prepare piece with bags stuffed with towels, cardstock on edges, or modeling clay but I pretty much can't visualize how I should prep my pieces. Any advice would be great and would help me save some money on the material I'm wasting every time I fail. Thanks.
