So what I used.
-package of instant mold
-one converted autogun
-sharp hobby knife
-a water cup
(-glue gun sticks)
So I also wanted to try using glue gun sticks but they are really not made for this. :D At least not the ones I was using. Those melted way too fast and they just made a heck of a mess.
|First boiled the water and threw some instant mold to cup|
|After the instant mold had softened I took it of from the cup and pressed the gun to it. I should also cut my fingernails, lol.|
|So now the gun is placed inside the mold. Now waited the mold to stiffen.|
|Then I cut the mold open with a hobby knife in half way and took the gun of.|
|This how ready mold looks like.|
|Then I put a piece of greenstuff on it|
|Then I added the top of the mold and started applying pressure using my fingers|
|Then we are done. This is how the mold looks like in the end.|
|Made other two copies too.|
|You can really see that mold picks out all the details quite nicely from the model.|
|This is what the molds look like now. We'll have to wait few hours them to dry but I will post the results when they are ready.|
Really nice stuff to use. Took me about a half hour to make all these three copies which is way much faster than if I would have made these guns from scratch. And I guess you it is possible to do this a lot faster when you get used to using this stuff. But I guess I'll be using this in future too, depends what the results will be. This bit definetly wasn't the easiest one to do but I hope these will work out.
And mean while we are waiting the results... I also made the base for the third team! As the bases are pretty much done I can move to detailing the crew.
