See my article ‘Making hollow casts in open or ‘closed’ moulds’ which you will find under ‘Mouldmaking and casting’ in the ‘Methods’ section. There is no problem in setting time and mechanical properties of the resin capsule. When added to polyester, vinyl ester or epoxy resins these materials can minimize resin drainage from vertical surfaces, increase bonding properties, reduce the cost of the resin mix, improve abrasion resistance or improve sanding properties, reduce or increase the mixed weight and lower shrinkage rates.

My question is what sort of texture and colour effect (when dyes area added) result when fillers are added. I was considering using rosin and beeswax, and it seems that some people who are working with rosin add charcoal to this mixture.

My main worry is that the two won’t bond together and may separate over time. Any ideas??? Many thanks for this Ralph! I’ve often thought of trying the same with the various plasters and cements I’ve got, but haven’t got around to it. This is the case for example when using ordinary talc.

I have the idea of using collagen from fish scales / bones; is this possible? Mixing plaster with this (if it’s advisable at all) would only diminish the metallic effect. You’ll need to explain a bit more I’m afraid. So some may impart more strength to a casting, some may sand to a smoother finish, some may even be lighter.

Each drop of the adhesive remains stationary even when applied on … Cheers For example, if you make a silicone mould around a lightbulb, the silicone will reproduce the ‘polished’ surface of the glass and transfer this in turn to the cast, whereas a prototype with a rougher surface will result in a ‘matte’ look on the cast surface. What type and % of filler could approximate a nice, dull, gray finish with a cool touch? The Tomps website recommends soaking the Cabosil in resin overnight (before being catalyzed of course) because it can be difficult to disperse and the limit should be 15% by weight (since fumed silica weighs very little this represents a lot). Also it should not affect the pearl effect in the product. As the name implies, this type of filler is receptive to staining. Thanks for the entertainment! However! The idea is to apply a thick layer of marble dust pre-mixed with epoxi resin, spreading it over the concrete plates surface, and once the resin is cured and dry, to grind it and polish. I rotocasted a few figures and the feel is like vinyl. It provides superior adhesion to most surfaces, including SMC, foam, wood, fiberglass, many metals, and even common construction materials.
