    How do you make a mold of your work and cast it? I've read a lot about it, but it's about as clear as mud to me.

    There's a thread here on Ronin677's work on his bucket.

    I would also buy their DVD. It is great. I would also go to www.freemansupply.com as well. They also have online video and a DVD. I would also get The Prop Builder's Molding & Casting Handbook (Paperback)
