Academy kit and accessories, Magic Sculpt sand bags, tissue paper put in place with diluted white glue and a soft brush in downward strokes (to respect gravity and achieve a natural look):

This is how it looked after holes were covered with plasticine (to optimize the moulding process) and a coat of primer:

Mould Making Resin Casting and Others


There is a pretty cool place up in the web for all our french readers - the Tutotheque - a place where a lot of tutorials are linked up in categories - take a look here, its all in french but it is a very good idea and i think a cool miniature related site for the future ... here is a little preview on what awaits you behind the upper link:

Mould Making Resin Casting and Others

Small scale to help me measure the quantities of silicone rubber and catalyst (or A and B parts of the polyurethane resin mixture), in terms of weight (as they're supposed to, instead of in volume). The scale measures a max of 1000g in 0.1g increments. I cost me 7 euro online, cheap and funcional.

I usually make the framming of the mould with cardboard (glossy side in). This way I can reuse cardboard boxes and safely dispose of the leftovers.

Cut out yogurt bottles are used as containers to mix the silicone or the resin. They are made of a plastic that doesn't melt when in contact with any of the A or B parts. Again, a way to reuse, recycle and reduce the amount leftovers.
