  • Sad attempt at replicating a ferrari emblem



    i can definitely say that Sculpey isnt good for small items, and it's not a good mold material for repeated use.
    oh well now i gotta get some hardening latex.

        I presume you used the sculpey to take a mould from the original badge, but what did you use to cast from that?

        & how do you make sure the back is flat?

          a. the part that came out obviously doesnt have a flat back
          b. i used resin to make the part, which is easy and flexible but gets droopy in the heat, so next time i'm adding fibers
          c. i poured resin directly into the sculpey mold. that part worked pretty good but the sculpey disintegrates after 4 or 5 parts in small areas like the groove in the letters, no good.

          latex will solve that problem

              Use casting resin!  It is clear and you can use pigment to insted of paint
              Is the mold the the rubbery stuff you put in the microwave, then turns like water then you poor it over the product, then cool and then you have a mold

                the stuff i used for that is called Sculpey, it's used to make models in the movie industry since you can bake it and it hardens when cooled. it's just no clean enought hough, so i need to find a good latex compound to make the molds

                    thanks. i've seen some good results with some hardening latex, so it might also be worth looking at (it's also very easy to remove parts from the molds)

                      Hi Auto,

                      Do a search for Smoothon and Eagerplactics. What you are looking for is slicone that doesn't have to have a release agent. These companies are just two a many I have book marked. I can post more if you need them.

                      The latex doesn't need release agen either but it is way to limber for making items like you want. the silicone can be ordered in many different durometers.

                              If you want extreme I can fetch my bin round & I will dispose of them!  I will take the moulds off your hands too if you want! ;D ;D ;D

                              They look damn good! It made me chuckle that you are producing a copy of ferrari's whole car & there is nothing they can do about it, but make a little silver horse & they will sue your ass!!

                              Made me smile anyway!

                              How would you pigment it to give a chrome like finish? Or would it be a close silver? (not that i am thinking of trying....honest!

                              BTW, Extreme I replied to your message
