Trim an remove excess RTV and clay Tip if using water base clay just pray it with water lightly let set and scrape or wipe off.

%3Ca%20href=IMG01218-20110705-1704.jpg">Reset mold box just as before spray and brush with release spray be sure to cover any exposed RTV and brush in reg. keys and between the mold box and the bottom part of the mold then pour top cap and let stand.

%3Ca%20href=IMG01219-20110705-2051.jpg">Next demold and remove any thing that dosent belong. (Positive and negative)

%3Ca%20href=IMG01220-20110705-2101.jpg">Then pour with resin be sure to press the mold together wile rocking it to get any air bubbles out and let cure Then sand or trim seams till they mate up square and true. Its kind of a rag tag TUT but I did it on the fly Hope it helps :D

the vid. I posted some time back about pouring balisting and hard wareing.The bills are done in a 2 peace solid mold but with clear polyester resin.
