    I'm about to make a mold for my Stormtrooper bucket and make some slush caste. I was just wondering on average about how much liquid plastic do you use. I'm assuming about 4-6oz slush around then repeat about 4-5 times? Am i way off base or somewhere in the ball park?

    one more thing when making the mold what is the proper amount of layers and do i need a mohawk to split the mold or do you think id be able to just peel it off the bucket?

    A few then reinforce it with mats? If you make a silicone mold and a hard shell, you should be able to slush it then take the hard shell off, then peel the mold off very slowly.
