I have finished a pretty decent looking helmet using WOW's awesome templates, which was further reinforced with fiberglass making the helmet almost indistinguishable from a bought one. I would like to make a mold of it and I have been researching a little and the different products for mold making is dizzying. I have checked out a great site online called Smooth-On, which sells everything and also has excellent videos on how to do various projects. The one product I thought might be ideal for a helmet mold was brush on material by the name of Rebound-25.

Would this be a good choice or am I way off? Would a mold of a helmet be best done with rubber or silicone and a mother mold for support, or is there a better way to go? I realize it can be expensive and I am not worried about that. If anyone who has made molds here could steer me in the right direction, I would be very appreciative as I am excited to start this project.
Thanks for any help.
