I want to make a jig head using epoxy or hard dense material. What material do you use to make a mold for epoxy and what release agent would you use.

RTV silicone will work. Just make sure you use a silicone compatible material to construct your proto head. You can use a spray or brush on mold release, or light application of talc. Fiberglass resin will work as your pouring material, or you can upgrade to one of the 2 part liquid plastics from smooth-on, US composites, etc. Those are a little more $$$ but easier on your mold than the resin -> longer mold life. Also a littel faster, cleaner, and easier to work with.
