I was just wondering if you could use plasti dip to make a mold of a bio. I was just going to brush it on and then put some tape on it to make it more durable and not as flimsy.

I'm not sure weather it'd have the shure strenegth required when you come to de-mold the bio. You could do a latex snap mold or has been said in previous threads molding silicone or silicone caulking, you can add acrylic paint to the caulking to get it to kick a mite quicker too. Sometimes it's worth doing something on the cheap, and then there's the times it's worth doing properly. Personally I would plump for the caulking for a first time mold like this, it is cheap and pretty easy to do a brush up mold. Just remember to where gloves. You can make a mother mold for the finished silicone mold from plaster bandages to stop it from warping when you cast the final piece.

I don't know about plastidip... but it would take quite a bit to make a mold. Unfortunately bios and armor when done in resin are expensive to mold... period. Tere really isnt a cheap way out.

I would try molding something smaller as a test. You don't know what will happen when the resin heats up inside the mold, and how he mold release will work.
