I've made this paw out of clay and baked it. Now I would like to make a mold from it to create a replica using silicone. I bought some Rebound 25 to make the mold but I'm wondering if that's the best…Continue
"Nicely done! Thank you for the advice and example of the different mouth applications. I'm animating a skull and was wondering how it would look without any lips or facial movements but it looked alright in your trailer, which I totally…"

"Ideally you should follow the practice of casting something flexible in a rigid mould and vice versa. So you would not normally use a silicone mould to cast silicone. You could re-sculpt your hand and not bake it, then cast it in a plaster 2 part…"
