    Where can I find a good, in-depth article on mold making and resin casting loaded with basics as well as tips and tricks? I am also interested in vacuum casting. Let me know what articles you guys have found to be informative and worth-while. Thanks.

    Let me ask this then...

    What is the best stuff to get? I was looking into Synair's Por-A-Mold and Por-A-Kast II. I also hear Alumilite's stuff is pretty good, too... but I can only find it in small quantities and it seems to be a bit more expensive. What do you guys say?

    What you use is pretty much up to
    " personal preferance " kinda' thing..

    Me, I have ALWAY'S used Por-A-Kast
    product's. Some like Smooth On, some
    don't.. Can't say I've read much on
    Alumilite stuff though ?

    BTW,if you DO go the Por-A-Kast route
    watch which type you buy ! I ONLY use
    the Mark II stuff as you have a little
    more working time with it. About 2 1/2
    to 3 minutes... The Mark I is VERY fast
    setting stuff, about 1 1/2 minute's !!!!!
    Only good for SMALL mold's !

    Just so you know.. [​IMG]

    I've learned so much from the editorials here:
    http://www.danperezstudios.com/ (Click on workshops)

    This is perfect for learning how to make Silicone molds and resin pieces.
