Molding sheep nose.

Discussion in 'Molding and Casting' started by elk74, May 22, 2014.

  1. I need to make a mould of a sheeps nose because the cape i m working on is missing the nose. Im going to take a mold from another mount and am wandering if algenate would work for this or possibly rtv? Im asking because i need something that will not damage the other mount. Ive molded mostly rocks using silicone so i would really appreciate some advice. Thank you.

    Either one ..............

    Neither will harm the nose or the mount.

    Both are close in price, but with alginate you have to use bondo for the cast. You can use polymer plastic but will have to ensure that the mold is really DRY!

    I would prefer to use GI 1100 silicone for good detail and a stronger mold as the alginate will start to shrink right away and can tear easily when taking it off the nose.

    With GI 1100 you can use IE 3030 for the cast and can use laquer base paint with the IE 3030 to color the nose when pouring.
