Instant Mold reviewThe product should be available on their website in the Shop section. I’m not going to repeat what this product is aimed for since it’s clearly said in the description.
For the record, I started a Salamander army for Warhammer 40K, but even though Games Workshop and Forge World released a few things for this army, they unfortunately forgot (or didn’t want) to add the Salamander’s Insignia in the drop pod kit, so I decided, thanks to the Instant Mold, to make one.
I’m not going to repeat how to use the Instant Mold, it has been seen on CMON website and you’ll find hundreds of tutorials on the web, though it’s always nice to have some little tips which I’ll try to give here.
Here is what I used
- The item you want to mold (here it’s a FW front door for a Rhino)
- Instant Mold
- Something to cut with (scalpel, cutter)
- Something to pick up the Instant Mold from the hot water
- A little piece of plastic card
- Something to make a container/framework for the mold and something to press the item in it (here some Legos, the number is depending on the size of the item you want to mold)
- Some stuff (here it’s Green Stuff but you can also use Milliput, Putty…)
The boxThe first thing you want to make is to make the box that’ll be used as container. I tried doing it without and I ended lots of time having parts that weren’t molded properly or bubbles which wasn’t nice. I noticed that with the container everything was molded nicely.
The flat pieces in the bottom are there so that you can press heavily the item in the mold without ruining it with the circles of the Legos
