Hi gang:

I am nearing the completion of my first sculpted piece and am planning to make a mold of it so that I can cast it in resin.

I was originally going to use Alumalite as my source for both the RTV mold making process and the resin.

A friend of mine at work found this website:

Their prices seem a bit more reasonable than Alumalite and I was wondering if anyone has used this product line before and what they thought of it.

Thanks for any insight you can offer.

I have been using Smooth On for years. The price is very good and their products are first rate.
