In this tutorial we show how to make a torso mold using PlatSil Gel-25 silicone thickened with TinThix thickener. A plaster bandage support shell was then made over the silicone to support the flexible body mold. Molds like this may be used to cast resin parts and hold up well to repeated casting. This type of mold is great for cold cast bronze pieces.
