Hello fellow modellers

i dont know if this has been brought up in the past, but i am going to make some latex moulds using several mini art dio and building ruin pieces.

Will i need to coat the plastic before i commence covering it with the latex to avoid sticking ???

Once i have made the moulds i will be able to produce some plaster work to avoid buying ruins everytime i want to do a diorama.

I've used nothing as a release... I've tried Tac powder, now I'm using the mold release that Smooth-on sells.

I'd see if whomever makes the RTV has a recomended mold release.
