    LUBE YOUR MOLD!!!
    Cool! we on are the same page. I have that clay as well. I will do the freezer next time. The kit came with some mold release that seems to work ok.

    Did you end up with a working mold? Lets see pics of your cast! I'll trade you one of my dudes for one of yours

    For some reason, his shoes never wanted to cast.. I could get the base tab under them .. but not the tips. I can understand the tip of the stake.. it's small, but for the most part when the molds were working, I got about 3 casts. I may try again later on with this guy as he is relatively "flat" when compared to the Daria hedgetrimmer one, but for now the original is safe in an old camera container for future use! I'd be open for a trade if you feel like it, PM me.

    Really enjoyed working on this fella, will definitely be finishing him over the next few days. Being really critical the arms are really sketchy and althoug my hands are an improvement I just can't get the level of detail on them I want.

    OK mini FAIL. My mold did not work out. too many air bubble not enough vents. I did make some very nice unrelated bases for some orks I am working on so it wasn't a total loss. And I learned alot I will try again next time. Chrispy i see what you mean!

    Finished mini actually happy with my progress, feel like I'm getting slowly but surely better which is what I was aiming for.

    @Demihuman You gonna try to cast it again?

    No, I really want to paint him. It's back to the drawing board for 2 part molds. I really like casting bases in a 1 part mold but the 2 part mold is way more work. Maybe we should have a separate cast-a-long thread!
