Let the process begin......
First steps taking today! Making the master mould. First up aligning the figures in the silican based mould and adding the alignement studds. Also removed the centre so it fits into the machinary for spinning.
The mould is then added to the compressor base (want for a better word) with lots of silican spray to help release it
Its then added to this beast and vulcanised for about an hour at 110 degrees.
Before it looks like I know what this is all about...Id like to thank Mike from Black Hat Miniatures. Mikes provided me with the means, skills and time to start this process and its his skills thats running the show! So big thanks to Mike
