Making Mold with Oyumaru
« on: May 27, 2017, 06:18:48 PM »
Found this vid on Utube about making mold with Oyumara.
This builder has some great ideas and build vids.
Some of his ideas I have used in building Gundam kits.
And making Pilots for 1/48 model planes.

Utube channel: PLASMO - plastic models





HLJ has Oyumara for $1.83 for 2 blocks.

I've seen the videos before. To be honest I'm pretty amazed by his ability to capture such fine details using the blue stuff because I've tried it before and never succeeded.

i have done something similar with plumbers putty (used to patch pipes), after a old tip from  Whitebase:
cold putty casting process
1- Imprint the part in putty and let it cure (20 min since i use an industrial grade putty that cures in 10 min :P )
2- Resulted mold
3- New putty layer (the mold was oiled with normal cooking oil so it won't bond with the putty used for recast)
4- Cast Result
5- The part i needed after some trimming and filling
