🪣 Molding and Casting

Updated at 2023-03-19 16:09

Molding Materials

Wagnersil 22NF Silicone:

  • 1:1, quite fluid
  • 6 min - 30 min
  • easy to work with

Blue Stuff:

  • reusable
  • works ok but not very fun to use
  • tiny details get lost

Moldable Plastic:

  • TODO
  • would be reusable...

Casting Materials

GSW Acrylic Resin:

  • quite runny so easy to pour to molds, easy to mix as you can add water gradually
  • not usable for thin casts, requires some thickness
  • hardens to white ceramic in 30 min - 24 hours
  • the result is hard with good details but brittle

Mosou Epoxy Resin:

  • leaves sticky residue
  • really runny and levels easily, leaves some bubbles
  • hardens to fairly clear in 36+ hours
  • heats up quite a bit while hardening
