Building a Custom 3D X-Wing Table - Part 2

Part 2 of this series is making your basic mold. I try to make molds in batches to use up a bottle of material so it is not sitting around.  I built a basic frame around my part that needed to be cast.  You can find out more on this on other blogs but if anyone wants I can show how I build my frame boxes.

The most important thing here is to be careful and take your time to pour and separate your original from the mold when your done.

Here you can see me mixing RTV mold material for pouring.

Allow your mold to set before doing anything else with it.

Carefully seperate your mold from your original.

Here you can see the mold is an exact copy of the piece and ready.
