I've begun to make resin gems, mainly for larp and cosplay. I have a cosplay project I'm working on that calls for a custom mold. I know Latex is one way to do it, but I'm having an issue with that. Every time ( I've tested it three times now ) I used the latex mold to cast my hair barrets, the rein doesnt release clean fromt he mold. It's sticky, and hasnt cured completely, and it just looks awful and gooey instead of crisp and clean.
I'm wondering if it's beacuse of the latex itself? and if it is, what ELSE can I use to make a custom mold for my resin casting?
thanks in advance , I hope some one can help.
