I've carved a male pattern, from wood, to a shape which feels nice and should pop out nicely from the mold.

I tried using some of the one part high temperature RTV stuff, which cures on exposure to the moisture in air.


Location: New York When I was a teenager and could not purchase ducks (no money) I made a pattern from wood and then made a mold from plaster of paris.
As far as I know the only silicone that is used in casting is to make a mold for wax copies that are then used in the lost wax process.

Made my own scuba weights the same way, bolt on type, but then started with plaster molds to get a nice copy of one I bought. Location: New York Just wondering if the production is up and running and if I can make a purchase.

These days, however, I no longer need more than 12, as large hand-faired drawings?are now done, instead, in a hull-fairing program. You can pour begining at around 700F but the results arent pretty on a consistent basis Well, that's why I say we'll see how it all turns out.

Every single painted spline weight I?ve worked with eventually had the paint chip and wear off. In fact, you can usually use a couple of heavy books, or mugs or cups filled with scrap bolts, or similar, at the spline's ends to make up 2 extra weights?effectively 8.
