    Awesome stuff.

    I am curious though; what's the application of the "light red" paint prior to making a mold for? Is it just one last coat of shinny paint to try and spot imperfections? A buffer layer in case the mold process goes awry; so you may only get paint ripped off instead of master model?

    You hit the nail on the head. When I need something with a smooth surface, I give it a gloss paint coat before molding. The color is just something that started as a goof and has since become tradition.

    A few other examples:
