    Slick Something smells fishy?

    If I can how do I go about doing it. I am wanting to do this for a project I am wanting to do.
     
  2. Yes you can.

    You need to fill in many of the holes that you don't want molding material to flow in to. Then you need to seal the skull. You also need to decide what all you want to mold. That is first of course. You also need to plan the material you will use to make the mold. The material you are going to make the casts out of. How many castings you are going to make. How long you want the mold to last. Etc. Etc.

    If you still have my number, give me a call to discuss. If not, pm me and I will call you.

    Not sure if you want to cast a skull WITH the antlers attached all in one piece, but if that's the case I would recommend casting the skull and antlers separately, and reattaching afterwards.
