First attempt at mold making

So, the past week or two iv been trying to make my very first mold! This is in preparation for ToyCon next year so I can sell resin toys as well as plush. Anyway, I got my rubber latex and my recently made golden antler model. I was pretty excited! Only for that feeling to ve shattered by the antlers breaking off as I pushed it into the clay. I wanted a two piece mold but now I had no model to make it from until I found one of my Russian dolls and inspiration struck. In excitement I poured the latex over the dolls. Days later it still wasn’t drying, apparently its silicone you can pour but latex needs to be brushed on in layers urghh. I scooped out most of the liquid and turned it upside down to start again. Whilst doing another one at the same time! It’s been a steep learning curve but hopefully it will all be worth it. I will be posting the results very soon. Might even do a tutorial if all goes well :)
