Well I thought I would ask for assistance in this little project since it will be the first time for me to try to mold and cast anything. I have a pair of bedford stu boots that have the accurate sole for Jango boots. They have never been worn. I am wanting to mold the soles before I wear them so that I can make replacement soles whenever these wear out (and they will because the rubber they used is very soft).
I don't want to remove the sole from the boot for fear of totally messing the boot up beyond repair, so I was thinking of casting them while still on the boot. I have the silicone recommended by smoothon and release spray.
I need help from this point on. (Yeah the toughest parts.) How do I create a mold that captures all the details of the bottom and sides of the sole? Any help in this project would be appreciated.
