Just look at them in their bubble gum pink splendor.
A full set of Silicone molds for an 18/17 inch doll, I just finished these for a client and I will be doing his casting work as well. Aside from the casting/molding work for my own dolls i also do the molds/casts for a few other artists.
I was hoping to have these finisehd a few weeks back but the insanely cold weather slowed the work down considerably. Silicone doesn’t take well to cold and it sloooows down the mold making process to a crawl.
aside from a little cleaning these are finally done!
I would like to know, is it possible to buy molds from you? How much would it be ?
I actually pressure cast, its the ONLY way to get perfect casts.. I do however de-gass my mixed silicone in a vacuum chamber before i pour my molds because if there are any trapped bubbles/air pockets in your silicone molds when you pressure cast them the trapped bubbles will collapse and deform your mold.. your finished part will look like it has the hives if you used one of those super low viscosity silicones this might not be a problem though, its something i always do as a rule And yes sprues will totally work pressure casting, all my tiny slim parts like arms and legs i cast with one main sprue breaking off into many tiny ones to fill and vent the parts properly but regardless,.. YOU CAN DO IT!
The thought of doing jointed dolls like yours is quite intimidating. My plan is to incorporate cast resin pieces into plush toys when I get round to trying it.
