As you may know for about 7 months I was actively hunting down Tothiro's Muftak. I eventually bought one from an Unknown source and I made a cast of just the head. I am using it to make a Talz warrior. Wink

PD@: I can use the same mold, but making more molds saves days of time and you get a lot more casts in fewer time. Smile

How? Do you have to wait between casting?

If I make four molds, I could pour the resin all at once and I could get more casts in fewer time. Yes I do have to wait between casting.

Rob barely exists on the internet anymore. I say casting and selling should be fine, if only because I'd want one if it turned out okay. Razz

For one I never said that I am going to sell. I said that I hope to and my parents might let me. I also never said I was going to sell the Talz heads.
I tried contacting Tothiro through Youtube once, but the legend of him never replying continued. Roll Eyes

Do it... Wink

Out of interest, did you get the one that's a bit like the Chewbacca piece, or the shorter one with a little tuft of neck-fur?

It's good. They are not color casts, but I just spray paint them and they look good.

Thats what I was wondering. The casts are not finished yet. They still need a couple days.

The process of casting starts with a mold, then you pour the resin, then you get the cast. I poured the resin and am waiting for it to dry.

3-4 days, and then the cast might not come out right.

I agree, that is a bit too long...my resin from Smooth-on takes only thirty minutes! Which type of resin do you use?

Is the drytime called "Demold time"? If so, then Alumilite only takes 5-8 minutes! According to thier website!

That's what I use... and that stuff hardens in 1-5 minutes, and more like 30 seconds for black resin
Be sure to mix your 2 liquids correctly.
