    Molding. I have no idea!

    I am about 50% done with my new gaunts and I want to make them into molds. How is this done? What do I make the molds out of and what do I use for the product? Also whare do I buy the stuff and about how much is this going to cost me?. Later I want to do my new JP.

    Try searching for the tutorials, those are some hefty questions.

    The short is : Silicone rubber and resin or fiberglass, alumilite.com and about 100-300 bucks depending on how thorough you go and the type of mold.

    alumilite has quite a few nice tutorials. Go there and check out how the do the 'toy car body' because thats how you will want to do your mold. Only youll want to do a brush on, instead of block beecause block uses a tun of silicone. Way too much.
