Monster Makers Foam -- New Mix Ratios

Hello all,I'm not sure how many of you out there use Monster Makers foam latex -- for me, it's the ONLY foam I ever use and have recommended it highly over the years.... till recently.This past week, I bought a new quart kit for a project, and discovered that the Mix Ratios had been changed "as of 2013" it said, "we strongly recommend that you use 170g of foam base instead of 150g. It will make better foam etc etc". So, I did as it said, and 4 hours later, cracked open the mold to find a hollow skin (never gelled).I went back over the instructions and found what I believe to be a small error in their measurements: 170g foam base, 30g foaming agent, 15g cure agent, and 10g gelling agent! -- in the old instructions, all the measurements are exactly the same save for the base, 150g, and the gel, which used to be 12g.   And that's not the worst part, on the back of the form, it tells you measurements for cups and spoons (for people w/out gram scales) and they say a 1/2 teaspoon of gel --…See More

"If you have a higher res copy of the film, you should post it to Vimeo or even YouTube again. It's getting a bit mangled in 2007 compression. Love the gator puppet. Looks like it was a fun build."

Has anyone cast from polyamide 3d prints?

Started by Joshua Liebling in CASTING. Last reply by Joshua Liebling on Thursday. 2 Replies

Polyamide plastic will apparently break down with water exposure, so this rules out gypsum molds. I'm curious if anyone here knows whether two-part silicone putty or other material would work with polyamide? I know this can be done with PLA. My end…Continue
