Albino Adam, a "staction" figure meant to be used as a base for custom figure sculpts. Made this guy from another figure and stripped it down to the plain body. Plan to do a female version too, if there's interest, I'll make different body types (realistic strong, thin, chunky, etc.) This guy (version 1) stands on his own at 6" tall, (Marvel / DC Legends / MOTU Classics scale), has no articulation, cast in solid white resin. Can be cut, sanded, drilled, and glued. Light weight.

Final mold. Cut in the vents/gates, so now ready to start casting. Detail is a little hard to see with the silicone being mostly clear, but the 3 parts fit together well, and only in one way. This was a big job, so future molds will probably be only 2-up instead of 4-up. Still, I'm happy with this and it taught me now things about designing molds.

Last layer poured. The entire house is not level, so it makes getting an even top/bottom a bit of a challenge. Used chunks of a retired mold to fill in some of the space, reducing my silicone usage. Once this part is cured, I'll cut the rest of the gates/vents into the mold. I read a tip by another mold maker (forget their name at the moment πŸ˜•) to do this. I had been building them into the positive before molding and think this will give me more control over optimizing the connection points. We shall see.

Mold box rebuilt and sealed up (well enough I think). Next step, measure and pour the 3rd part of silicone. Will lay in a few pieces of unused/old silicone to take up a bit of space.

Slow slow slow, part 3 still to go!
Peeled off the box parts, and slowly excavated the clay then cleaned up the debris. Need to rebuild the box, calculate the amount of silicone needed then pour for great value! Haha.

Reached Stage 1 successfully. Peeled away small portions of clay at sides of the reservoir exposing some locking keys. Need to add the last mold box wall, seal the edges, and spray in some mold release so the exposed clay won't bond to itself (a thin layer of petroleum jelly works great if you're feeling unsure about the mold release not being enough). After this second part is made, the hard part begins, peeling the clay Vader away and leaving the parts & reservoir trough intact to pour part three of the mold.

I'm not dead, just quietly working on things for @blughost_productions. Trying to refine and up my production game by doing a 4-up mold instead of casting one by one, saving myself time, money, and materials later on.
Always good to think on the long game. Invest in yourself to reap the dividends later.

We're doing it all wrong guys. Apparently the big money's in plaster casts of cliche yard trash.

Quick follow up, mixed and applied the Rebound (pink stuff). It's kinda of thick, called a "brushable" silicone. This is what I mainly use it for, patching. It'll bond to the MoldStar and make a pretty good fix. Will update later (probably tomorrow) once it's fully cured.
