Hi folks, my buddy Martin found a way to make silicone molds directly over Puppet Putty. Until now, it was not known that you could do it without a release.
We both noticed that the mold should have been cut in a zig-zag pattern (d'oh!) but so far he's not having any trouble getting the edges to match up.

Talented guy, and an animator to watch. He's going to be working a lot with the 'Putty, and is doing cool stuff. Here's a test animation I convinced him to share:
