    What are you moulding?
    What material will your end product be made from?

    Give us a bit more information and I am sure someone will be able to offer advice.

    why do you want to make a mold? Do you want it re-usable? and like asked above what is your final product material?

    If you only wanna make one set of armor, you don't want to make molds. Molds are for making lots of them and typically you have to make the first set to form the mold.
