Will this be a latex casting? or Resin.
I'm also doing boots but will be casting in latex I still haven't figured out whats the best way to mold/cast it.

They look good. Alittle advice....make sure you let them set for a good 24 hours after smoothing with mineral spirits to let the clay stiffen up again and then coat with krylon acrylic clear and give that a good 24 hours also.i've made both mistakes ! You get the sculpt done and just cant wait to get the mold done and pour your first one....haste makes waste. Then you should let the mold cure for a couple days.......they suggest a week or two....but who can wait that long!? Just some friendly advice in case you weren't aware.Don't know how long you've been doin this.

not really.....I only spray a thin coat of krylon acrylic clear on my sculpt's.
I reuse all my clay , but i use chavant medium. I kneed it all back together and you can't really notice the clear coat.It shows up here and there but it is nothing to be concerned about.Glad I could help.
