Molding and Casting

Phew....after a long struggle this week and last week to create the mold for my creture bust, its finally done!

Was definitely a huge learning experience, since this is the first time I've ever created a silicone mold. The hardest part for me was getting the outer plaster mothermold. I could not get a handle on the correct consistency of it, but finally got something that, although was very messy and ugly, worked well enough to get a couple castings out. The first was in Monster Resin, and the second in Plaster since I have a bunch of it.
