The molding process is kinda tricky.

It really is better shown in a video because there is a lot of stuff to explain.

Basic description is.

Take your model/sculpt.
Cover it is saran wrap.
Lay a 1/8" - 1/4" clay bed over the sculpt.
Make the registration keys in the clay bed. (I make vert/horiz lines)
Seal the clay with clear coat.
Then make your mother mold over the clay bed (fiberglass/plasti-paste)
Take off mother mold.
Take off clay bed.
Take off Saran wrap.
Put mother mold BACK over the sculpt.
Cut a pouring hole in the mother mold.
Pour in silicone.
His method basically makes a void for the silicone to perfectly fill.
Let dry.

The alternative is to brush on layer after layer of silicone (messy / wasteful).

I always found the brush on method made it very hard to get a solid registration with the mother mold. Because the surface was so rough and bumpy.


Thanks for all the support. It's a lot of work making these videos. Happy to do it as long as people are watching.

I wish I had some footage of making the mother mold. I can dig and see of there is some from the Boar video. It won't be anything fancy but at least you can get your eyes on what I am talking about here?




Anyone interested in seeing?

Thanks again amigos!

Thanks again Gene for taking the time to take the video, edit and put funny references to Corona's in there as well! The only way for other people to learn is to teach and for you to take the time by doing this will give people the confidence they need. Thank you again Gene!

Hey Gene, thanks for the walk through, it will come in very handy. Have you got a picture of where you would cut the hole in the mother mold to pour the silicone in?

I will have to look at my notes to see the type of silicone used.... get back to you on that.

As for the pour hole, needs to be at the highest most point. I planned ahead and sculpted a HIGH section at the top of the helmet during the mother mod making process.
