How do you solve difficult mold making challenges? In this video, Milo demonstrates how to keep the end goal in mind--a translucent resin pine cone--every step of the way when planning out the mold.
The first challenge is sealing the model (an actual pinecone) and giving it a glossy finish which will look better when casting a transparent clear urethane resin.
Next, a silicone mold rubber that is both stretchy and durable enough needs to be selected for a piece with deep recesses and undercuts.
Lastly, a suitable clear casting resin is used to make the finished pieces, ideal for outdoor display or in a themed environment.
