Rubber Mold for Turret Doors

Ignore the date stamp--should be 7-4-12.

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 comes in long, square sticks, in 6 colors.  I cut the sticks in half to build a mold wall.

The play clay wall is finished.  Make sure the clay is stuck firmly to the base board.

 You mix part A with part B and****mix well !!! Then you pour the ugly gray/purple liquid into the mold.  If you intend to make the rubber molds--read the instructions a couple of times.  I get my molding rubber and resin from  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.
