Silicone Mould/PlatSil Appliances

12 Jun

These past few days I have been making big progress on the SFX front… I feel like I’m actually learning useable skills now! (Thanks to Natalia!!). Having created my moulds (actually I did use PlatSil for these and created a Modrock shell to keep the shape, but as I have now realised, using a stronger silicone; such as BlueSil, would have been more appropriate), I have now started creating my PlatSil pieces, encapsulated with cap plastic (2x 1:1 dilution layers, 2x 1:0 layers).

So, my first appliance… made a couple of mistakes. Definitely don’t need accelerator on a warm day!! So that didn’t work out. I also realised I only want the PlatSil in the deeper parts – as they’re flat backed pieces, it needs to be Cap Plastic backed to make sure they encapsulate properly, stick to the skin and can be blended out efficiently.

So, Version 2.0 worked out great. Now for the other 7 pieces to make!
