Intro to Silicone Molding

In this class we will show you how to reliably reproduce cast objects using a two part silicone mold. When skillfully applied, you can have incredible resolution and effectively cast very complex shapes. Also this production method can yield multiple parts with limited need for cleanup.

This type of mold is most useful for parts that are fairly small, and therefore will not consume a massive amount of silicone to cast. This is great for reproducing prototypes you have 3D printed or for making props for stage and screen.

Topics we may cover are:
Measuring & Mixing
Vacuum Degassing
Applying Release Agent
Cure Process
Curing and Heat Curing
Mold Performance & Storage
…. and more
