For those of you who have been following my facebook page: [link]
you have seen my experiments with mold making and sculpture!
Latex molds are not so great. Basically you have to paint thin layers of the liquid latex over your sculpture. Each layer has to dry 100% before you proceed with the next one. They recommend you use a hairdryer to help with the process. Hairdyer+latex= the worst smell ever. After about 6 hours (15 layers of latex), I gave up and ripped the mold off of my poor little scupley toad. Thankfully, the process didn't hurt him! I tried pouring some plaster into the latex mold, but the toad that came out definitely didn't look like the sculpture.
Next I tried RTV silicon. You get 2 bottles, which you mix together and pour over the sculpture. It sets in 6 hours and no hairdryers are involved. You just pour it, and leave it. Come back later and you will have a strong, flexible rubber mold ready for casting! I made resin casts out of the mold, so the sculptures would be more durable.
Overall, it was a really fun experiment, and I am excited to try more!
