Best way to create mold from a real fish?

I've just ordered some Oomoo silicone which I think will be perfect for what I need it for. I'm also going to pick up some smoothcast 300 for prototyping. no need to have the right density during that stage. I just need a quick methos of making identical lure bodies for experimenting with joint spacing,joint faces hinging methods etc.
