Another Attempt At Mold Making

7 posts in this topic

I have decided to give mild making another attempt, but once again I am falling short on finding supplied that won't break the bank, or cost me more in shipping than the product itself. I can get Oomoo 30 from Blick's supply store in NYC, with a 40% off coupon. And I can get Alumilite casting plastic from the local Hobby Lobby, again with a 40% off coupon.

The area I fall short is Mircoballooons. I found these online, and according to Google, available from some of the local marinas. I am not 100% sure if this is the right stuff. Are these microballons what I need?

You need to send a PM to Coley on this site. This guy is the honest expert when it comes to mold making and micro balloons. He is a wonderful person and the real deal when it comes to this. Tell him Skeeter sent you.

Watch that you don't accidentally inhale those microballoons. They are really light, and move with the slightest breeze. A dust mask is a good idea.

Mark is on the money. It is my understanding that microballoons are made of glass. You don't want to be inhaling that.
