Hi, I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask (and I'm not sure if this topic already existed) but I was wondering how you make copies of custom figures. And mostly how you make the mold. Ad a few photos if possible! Very Happy

It is used by dentists to make a mold of you teeth :) It is cheap and available in shops for dental technicians. But it is only for one copy maybe. I've also used plaster to fill it.

Thank you very much! I made a figure with wax, but because I can't paint it (and keep it in good condition) I thought that maybe I could make a copy scratch
