Heya,

Well I recently got some instant mold thats been getting advertised around the boards these days and have been feverishly casting bits and pieces.

So far I have cast;

A havok autocannon (detail rich and long barrel)
a pistol holster with attached magazine (eventually broke, but now have a good cast)
grendades
my custom boltgun (not quite how I want it yet)
a couple other little things

If anyone has any questions about it fire away, or if you would like a tutorial (although I'm no expert by any means) heres the place to ask.

Overall the detail capture is really really good if you're very careful about the casting. I've had no problems reusing the mold yet although excessive playing with it right after its wet can leave bubbles full of water. Its also ridiculously easy, and with care the flash volume is manageable.

I am struggling somewhat with getting a hard enough substance to use in the cast as putty comes out a little too rubbery for certain items. But can't use melted stuff some yeah not sure with that. I am thinking about reinforcing with some wire which might help and also save on putty (it surprised me how much putty you need for even a pistol holster).

Cast some Daemonettes out of marzipan, royal icing or chocolate.

Slannesh is delicious, especially when they fail their saving throw.

This idea has great merit! I need more instant mold!

Alrightey, I had a mega cast session this morning and am really starting to accrue a good collection of casts from little accessories I want my chaos marines to have.
