Gone but not forgotten.
Are you making a mold of some armor you already have? Or making a negative mold of a sculpt to make a buck (vacuumforming positive) from? Or are you making a negtative mold to make fiberglass castings from? I'm confused as to what you are doing.

I suppose it all depends on what sculpting material you are using.If you tell us then I'm sure the experts here can help more than me.

But,I used a hot melt rubber when I first started making moulds,and had good results.The good thing about this type of rubber is than when you have made your plaster cast,you can cut up the rubber mould and remelt it to make onther :p
