    can you use silicone caulking in a deep dish or bowl to make a mold of a trout head then cast it with thinned bondo

    if you did it like Josh shows in the rock tutorial then maybe, but its not the best product for the job. If it is a common size trout head that can be replaced why don't you experiment and tell us...but if I am reading into the way you asked it right you will have a gooey mess.

    unless you do like in josh's tutorial you need to make sure you do not get your silicone caulk too thick if you do it will not set up right.

    True unless he puts a bit of acrylic paint in it
     
  6. silicone works great on a trout head just thin some with xylo you can find with the paint thinner at the store brush on a couple coats this gives you all your detail then yopu can build up the cast by using silicone right out of tube works fantastic
