Very nice. Here is my offer. You send the bunny and I'll pay the postage. I will send ( I'll pay postage to you) my hedge hog mold as a loner. You can make a few castings and do with what you like with said castings (wink). Once you have a few castings send the mold back to me at your cost. I will also put in a few plastic molds in with the loner mold. If this is to your liking PM me for address exchange and payment arrangements. If not feel free to counter offer. Thanks

I picked up a Silhouette Cameo last winter. Its a entry level vinyl cutter. Not meant to cut thick plastic but I'm pushing the envelope. May seem unrelated however this will be used for future vac formed mold making.
I had to make a few passes on material changing blade depth to achieve cut.

Lots of fun. I'm limited to what size I can pull. I like the idea of the aged barn board texture as a path so I just bought a whack of molds from the Ukraine. Like the designs from this seller for landscaping. Went way over budget but shipping was free to Canada and they got here in a week. I pretty much bought every mold he/she has.
I don't know why my reply doesn't post. I have talked to at friend about it, and he thougt, that PET og PET-G is the types used, but they are hard to find her, unless I have a company.
Ill try ABS - thanks
PET is easy to form. A little more $ I think. Tis here anyways. Food safe too. Might have a hard time finding it in a thickness to suit your mold size. I can only get it in 020 & 030.
Most molds I make for myself I use HIPS. Cheap and pulls very good detail. As I'm the one using them I know how to handle them so they last and don't crack. So HIPS is good for yourself when using care when casting. Not so good to use for selling molds as newbs will end up breaking them.

Depends on what you are casting and how big. I'm guessing concrete as you are on the forum so ABS is a good durable easy to form plastic. You could use cheaper HIPS if you are casting the molds yourself as HIPS is a more fragile and won't take abuse. 040 to 060 is a good thickness for hobby I would think.

Another model I'm trying to get wrapped up. Using air dry clay I embedded real shells and negative imprints. The first pic is the waste mold from pulling the sculpture. Needless to say I completely destroyed the original trying to get mold off and nearly destroyed the waste mold too. Some duct tape and hot glue for a fix and cast with tooling resin. Dremel work ongoing. Hope to cast final this weekend.
