I have been searching my Breakthrough Mags. and I guess I am either over looking it or have misplaced it. Can someone please tell me the Issue #. Also If anyone saw his seminar at the WTC what is the product he used for casting the throats with, I don't believe it is in the article, if memory serves me right. I am not getting the results I want when casting fish heads with alginate and would like to try Gary's method.

Is what we cast the open mouth's with followed with a mix of resin and bondo. In a comming issue I believe Gary is doing an articule for them. Then once removed the bondo resin mix is coated with Mother's gold paste wax before you pour the head.
I found the Issue # under back issues but I can't Find my copy.
The silicone ya'll use is a two part right? I for some reason did not write the name in my notes. I assume the stuff in the tube wont work due to it not being free flowing and the two part stuff I have is dragon skin and has a longer set up time then I would like. I know he measured it by weight like you would do with the dragon skin but I don't think it was a smooth on product. I thought he used a Vaseline mixture for a release or was that just on the fin molds? Tanks for your help
Joey this is the silicone product I use in the mouth. It is from Silicone Inc. Hold tight because I am (as we speak) putting the finishing touches on the article "Making Artificial Fish Heads". In that article I will demo two different ways of making a great Fish head.
Can't wait to read it and try it. And I think I will hold on for it before i mess up any more fish heads.Thanks again Gary.
