So... after this explanation, will I show you some kind of tutorial about mould making and resin casting.
In this part, I'll show how to make a "hemi-mould", or the half of a mould.
I think that the pics speak for themselves, but I'll add some words anyways.
First, what do you need:
- LEGO pieces
- Silicone and activator
- Resin and activator
- A stick or something to add the vaseline
- Big syringe and little one too
- Plastic container, glass or something where to mix the silicone and activator
Begin making a place with the LEGO cubes for the piece or bit you want to replicate.
That's it! Then you should wait 24 hours to let the silicone cure.
In this tutorial, I've avoided topics such as the silicone mixing and other hints and tips. This is only the first part, so, consider it "mould making 101"!
I'm also working now in another comission work. Once again, Dwarfs!
This time my job is to paint 25 Dwarf Clan Warriors with HW and shield for another friend.
Hopefully I'll be posting some WIP pics of those, now I'm finally "almost" done with their paintjob. Actually... I'm not, but that's what I said Topo about his dwarfs. I still must some things, and the magnetize their bases!
