I've posted this on TGN as I think a few people will find it interesting.
I meant to say no worries.
I preheat the rubber on one half the mold. This allows me much more control than cutting. If you notice the masters the parting line hAs nothing buried. If you cut this mold like traditional mold makers the bottom of the tail would have been under the rubber when cured. I do cut some items also but with masters in metal you get much better control and worries. Resins must be cut into the molds as we'll.
Thank you for sharing the process with us. I found it really interesting.
I can't wait to get my massive amount of worms!
Why didn't you cut pockets for the masters to sit in? I thought that was standard practice to avoid "flattening"?
Nice, I'm always interested in the process.
