Molding and Casting Tutorial – Custom Head Sculpts



This tutorial details my process when it comes to duplicating an action figure head or a custom head that I’ve sculpted myself. This is helpful when making different versions of a character or interchangeable heads for one character. I am using a range of Smooth-on products including silicone rubber for the molds and liquid plastic for the eventual casts. Links will be provided below.
