Hello guys, in the past few months I made a M77 Paladin/Carnifex from Mass effect and I got up to the molding stage, where things got out of hand. In short I got my test mold silicone cured to itself. I didn't have access to molding wax, as I couldn't find any, or it goes by another name in my country. I tried with PVA release but either I didn't apply it correctly or it is not suited for the job. I have brushable PVA and when applied in a thin film over the silicone and the piece it dried forming drops not as a film. I tried many times still no film coverage on the hydrophobic silicone. Any tips for applying PVA release as I would have the same problems during casting? Also what are acceptable replacements for mold wax? Maybe petroleum jelly? What does the wax contain, as I am more likely to find some by searching the chemistry behind the product? I'll make a WIP thread for the build later on when I get to a PC.
