    Great Youtube Helmet Mold Making Video

    So I have never made molds before but am sculpting a helmet....I am new to it and did not quite know how I was going to make a mold for the helmet I am designing (Twi'lek Mando). I did not understand what slush casting was....rotocasting and other casting methods were greek to me...so I started digging....

    Then I found this...

    It's that what they call a "slush cast?"

    That was a really informative video I never did understand how they made resin helmets. Although it is partly because I never really looked into it hard.
