do I have to put some release agent in the silicone or will not it be necessary?
Hey brother! Although Release may not be required for a Silicone mold, Urethane has been known to stick to Silicone. When in doubt, use it. I use a general Release it with all my Silicone molds for the fact that it protects the mold and keeps it in top shape.

Looking Good bro!!! :D

You can also try putting in some black food colouring/dye together with the foam mixture before you pour so your foam comes out dark grey-ish/black-ish. so might not need as much plastidip or none at all :D or when the plastidip wear off, it won't show a bright white underneath..only if you want :D

use black pigment and look like a dark gray. I proceeded to put some black acrylic paint on it and it was much better. the foam absorbs the paint and grabs it very well. this is the method that I see best.
