    Hey guys, quick question. If I want to make a mold of something that I made a while back and its painted and everything, and I start slapping some Rebound 25 on it, will it rip the paint off when I take the latex mold off? I'm wanting to start casting some of my stuff, but don't want to deal with repainting everything.

    Probably not, but maybe...

    I always prime stuff before I mold it (helps to see if the finish is good). I almost always have a tiny bit of primer pull up with the mold.

    I haven't tried molding anything that is finish painted. The rebound is VERY good at capturing details. You will see brush strokes, paint edges, etc... in the mold / copies.

    i dont think so either. but it will pick up every little detail. my experiance is to thave the item in question be as smooth as possible using 2000+ sandpaper.

    but if thats what you're going for....rock on!

    Apply mold release spray and after molding, then clean up the items after you are done. No paint lift. At least with the silicon I use.
