A baby cheers that's the real solution Very Happy When they will reach adult size, you will send them to us... You don't need to make a mold, only increase takin natality Laughing

Congratulation, it is very nice !

Alright, here's the thing:
I talked with that guy and he told me about the cheaper silicone, so I'm going to buy it next week and hopefully I will make copies just before Christmas :)

I've tried to make a copy but the silicone leaked from my box Rolling Eyes It was supposed to dry after 5 mins, but it didn't silent I've rescued some of it but I don't think I will be able to use it once again ._. Such a failure for a first time Neutral

Yes, I remember our frustrating first trials in 2009, I was so angry - two molds were completely wrong, with curved legs (and some bubbles also) because I sculpted in not hardering material those times. So I lost two prototypes and molds were bad too Evil or Very Mad

Keep trying Agata, I'm sure second trial will be much better!!!

I will leave silicone for smaller figures and better molds, with not so many small elements, and I will try again with something else Razz It's very frustrating, but at least I know what NOT to do and I know how to sculpt to make a mold easier to cast. I'm considering making male takin to cast if for you with Kromopan.

Thank you all for comments cheers It makes me so happy that somebody likes it :)

Anna, could you tell me please if you know if I can use the spoiled silicone again? I mean it did not dry, it is still liquid even if I have mixed all the components together (probably I used not enough of one of them). I consider if it will dry or not? scratch

Is it still liquid after few days? scratch Then maybe You can do the proof on the small part of it and add more of the hardering stuff and see what happen? scratch But final version of Your silicone "after experiments" may have worse features then it is written in description of the product.
Sometimes silicone do not get harder also if the layer is too thin (for example if it's only 1-2mm it will never get hard). study Most of the time silicone layer must be at least 5-7 milimeters thick and then You can be sure all process will work correctly.

Some silicone which was left in a bottle (not closed one, I used it to mix everything) is still liquid scratch I will try to add some hardener to it and we will see. I want to make a copy of my jaguarundi. I will try, we will see Neutral

As far as I understood it's not hardering in the mold but in bottle, so it actually is not any promising news about the mold itself scratch
