I need to purchase some liquid mold making supplies and request
practical on the properties of the various products
I have used clear urethane mold compound but found it very difficult
to control. I have used Rio Grande Ditto silicone and found it
excellent, but expensive.
I am looking at Ferris See-Thru Flexible mold compound. This
material is a lot less expensive than silicone and thus desirable.
The catalogue description indicates it is transparent when baked at
350 degrees F and is good for beginners.
The Question is, if I am molding a pattern carved from wax, what
prevents the wax part from melting during the baking operation? It
would appear this material is limited to reproducing original parts
produced from metal?
Keeping an open mind,are there other molding compounds I am missing
that might be better?
