Test Making On Making Silicone Mold On Ear

There is a lot of way to make a mold out of our Sculpture that we have made. I have try to use fiber glass to cast a mold out of my sculpture and the result is not as what i'm expected and have in mind even it can be done and the result is ok. It's quite a tedious work on it "^^ especially when you have to separate the mold from your sculpture. On the pass few weeks or months, i have try to look for a silicone which is in liquid form within my area (the place where i'm living now). Reason? because want to try to cast my mold using Silicone. The luck is not within me as there is not where i can look for the Silicone in liquid form in my place "==

So i was wandering and thinking, how about using Silicone Sealer or in another word Silicone Caulk. Yes it can be done but there is one risk about using the silicone sealer is there will be a bubble trap in your silicone because it's not liquid and curing time is very fast too "^^

Oh well .. i said to my self, just try it out and see how is it since Yui also said the same thing which is .. "Let's try to make a mold on the ear parts then see how is the result. And we bought 1 Oz of the RTV Silicone sealer.

This how it look like when i cast the one of the ear sculpture into the silicone "^^ It was my 1st try and quite fun actually. Somehow the mold make me think of Alien Slime or texture "^^

the best part about using silicone is that it will not stick to your sculpture and easy to take them out and you have the shape of your sculpture inside the silicone mold. ^^ easy isn't it? If you scare that the silicone might stick to your sculpture try to use any agent release to separate your sculpture from the mold.

Yesterday i was testing to cast back the ear using FRP resin ^^. the result? take a look on the next photo.

Crystal ear .. "^^ I never know it is very easy to cast back the ear even the result is not 100% the same but to me 85% and above will do good for me. But still, need to smooth out the unwanted surface. By using the mold it will save my time on the casting ear part next time ^^.

Smoothing is not very hard for me just using some sand paper will do ^^ and here is the final result of it. It really satisfied me and which prove that using the sealer can be use on making the mold also.

That is for a small part or portions but how about the bigger part? such as the kigurumi mask head? "^^ well.. i think i have some way to cast it but still i don't know whether it will work or not ^^ until then i end my report here.
