I have been fooling around with fiberglass on and off for a few years now. I have finally dedided to make a project which I want to make a mold then cast some copies. this happens to be some saddle bags for a sport bike.
I have used advice from some of the forum members on making the plug (model), using cardboard and bondo, and have the shape almost perfect.
I have two questions.
1. what to cover the bondo plug with so that I can get a smooth surface for the mold?
2. what is a simple fool proof method to make sure the mold does not stick to the plug ( a few weeks a go I did a fiberglass over foam plug, put on 6 layers of mold release wax, and then the fiberglass mold stuck and would not release)?
any help would be appreciated. some members like Morrow Sun or bigkidbiggertoys seem to be very expert in these matters hopefully they would have some great advice for me :thumbup.
any help would be appreciated.
