ROUND NO.1

 

"PAPPY'S"  formula F-1 thingie project

 

Fellow slot blogger has a neat project a  formula F-1 thingie , since many pm chat he has come a long way with his own vacuum table up and running, but has run into some small problems not being able to get good pulls.

 

 So he sent me a resin body he made and was using one to pull bodies from but with some success.

 

Now what  I have done was to make a silicone mold of his resin body. I will cast a new plug and drill the vent holes and pull a few bodies.

When done I will send Pappy the this mold so he can use it to pull some bodies from and hopefully he can pull some good bodies .He then can compare my mold with with his mold and help guide him along.

 

The follow photos can be viewed as a how to step by step and self explanatory.

It would be a great help if you could indicate the specific materials (and source if possible) you are using to make the various molds. Thanks!

Here ya go;

 

Best clay

Silicone Compatible Modeling Clay

Also mold release friendly.

Special synthetic clay that will not contaminate silicone rubber. Use for containing flow of RTV during mold making and for making simple molds. (Place a little #80966 Industrial Talc on the part and press it into the clay. Then carefully remove the part and pour resin into the cavity). 1 lb.

 

Mold silicone

OOMO 3O

 

Resin
