Tell us how this turns out. I've been hesitating to start turning our copies by resin. How are you going to make the mold?

I think the silicone rubber mold & casting resin are available in hardware stores there. If you want to get it on-line check out Micro-Mark.

Pwede ba malaman kung saan bumibili ng rubber mold compound yung dentist or ikaw kung were you planning to buy one.. Naghahanap din kasi ako noon eh.. wala ko makita sa ace hardware puro mga adhesives lang.. bukod kasi sa rubber molding compound kailangan mo pa ng release compound na ipahid or spray sa model mo para di dumikit yung model sa molde.. at kung porous naman yung model mo tulad ng kahoy kailangan mo pa ng filler like petrolium jelly at ipahid para d naman mag sip yung chemicals sa kahoy... pede ba malaman kung saan ka bumibili.. I have been looking all around for this wala ko makita d2 sa manila.. This are the things advance modelers at pati mga special effects people used to create theire creations sa america.. kaya naman gus2 ko ma22.. kaya nagtataka nga ako kung bakit mga modelers d2 ay d gumagamit nyan.. tell us naman kung saan makabibili.. thanks.

Sirs,

Here are some info that might help re: resin and stuff.
I've been resin casting 1:35 parts for armor and figures for quite sometime. Was able to produce Waffen SS helmets w/ liners, clear googles, rpgs, etc. usign a mixture of plaster of paris and r10-60 resin w/ a two piece silicone rtv mold.

You'll need
1.RTV Rubber mould + Catalyst (RTV580 or RTV520)
2. R10-60 Resin
3. MEKP
4. Clear plastic cups (supermarket)
5. Mixing sticks (coffee stirr)
6. Filler (plaster of paris, pinatubo ash, calcumine)

The quickest way is to let others teach you ro get yourself a manual (in CD format video) available at Polymer.

Sir you said a mixture of plaster of paris and r10-60. This mixture will be your casting resin, is that right? I'm planning on recasting 3.75 and 6" toy heads, is r10-60 the resin I have to use to have that plastic figure?

I've been reading and watching tutorials for casting and molding. The only problem now for me is to where and what specifically resin type i have to use.

I've checked the website of polymer products, and there a list of types of resin. one of them is r10-60.

Btw, this is only for hobby customizing purposes. not planning on selling them.

thanks!
