In this picture I am putting play clay along the door edge to make it even. I also put a thin coat of Vasiline all over the front of the door. Then I took tiny balls of the play clay to put on the back of the turret door, to temp. attach it to the wood base of the mold. Make sure it is stuck flat.
The play clay wall is finished. Make sure the clay is stuck firmly to the base board.
http://www.polytek.com/ and you can print the instructions from their web site. The mold rubber I use is PlatSil 71-20 RTV.
After 4 hours you have this great mold--too cool !!! I will pour the resin in a couple of weeks. I have some new projects that have popped up.
Thanks for reading my blog.

Then I put on a thinner card board in the shape of a big door hinge and made a raised design using a monojet to squirt out modeling paste to make the designs. Next step-MAKE THE MOLDS.
Hope all this made sense-I am very tired.

I am a huge fan of Harry Potter. I have had quite a few ideas for rooms-they are the Head master's Wizard room w/a spiral stair case, Hagrids hut-I'm sure there are more. The room I am going to start is Dumbledorf's office/library/. The first thing is the shell. I will have to think on that. I have asked the club I belong to if anyone has a two story house they are ready to trash-no response yet. I really think that very wide foam core would be good. I will have to think on it a while. No pictures yet. I am organized on this project, too-I have put everything in a box. Most of my problem is finding stuff when I get ready to use it. I plan to make two or three of each accessory I make and sell the extras-that, I hope, will pay for the project.
More on this later.
