    Frank Ippolito joins us at Adam's shop for another step-by-step tutorial in prop making. This time, we learn how to make a two-part silicone mold that we can use to cast resin copies of complex objects. We demonstrate the technique by duplicating a lightsaber prop made by Adam!

    Water based clay really? next time use plastiline :D and you dont need to seal anything, silicone doesnt stick any surface but silicone you can use some vaseline to avoid this..

    That was fascinating. One thing I especially appreciate with the questions that simplified things especially for people like me to help understand the process and what's need to achieve the end result. I've never used resin before, cause I never thought it would be available or easy to use since I've tried making arts and crafts the harder way. After watching this video, the ideas and possibilities are pouring in so fast to the point where I'm getting a head ache. Now, it feels like that all things, art and crafts feels possible and endless.
