Does anyone like making molds? It's pretty fun. I usually buy a diorama kit & replicate it. Then I have a master mold. Or if I need a radio.
It is expensive, so.....I use silly putty on the small stuff to make a quick mold. Then make copies using 2 part liquid plastic.
I wish I could make a mold of myself but I do that every morning in the bathroom. ha..yes, that's a joke.

Yes I use Oyumaru instant mold, excellent product and re-useable.

Haven't tried it with epoxy resin, so just normally use kneadtite or magic sculpt. I mainly use it to add extra stowage items or duplicate tyres...
