I am wondering if anyone out there has attempted to use the metal Thingmaker molds to make creepy crawlers out of polyurethane resin (casting resin) or simply using acrylic paint mixed with any of the gel mediums out there. There is one medium in particular, Golden's Clear Tar Gel, that makes a very pliable, rubbery glob when poured and left to cure. You can mix the lovely Golden transparent acrylics with them and end up with these lovely transparent objects that are very similar to the cooked Goop, only the nice thing is, these cure in the air. They are also permanent and archival, when coated with a varnish. I am thinking of trying to pour this mix into one of the molds to see what comes out--I will then adhere them to my works on canvas or wood.
I also like to use resin in my work, and I wondered if I used a spray release agent in the metal mold, if resin would pop out when it's cured. Does anyone have any wisdom in this area?
What I am trying to avoid is ruining the lovely old metal Thingmaker molds. I either want to use them successfully, or I want to sell them. I'm afraid if I try either process, it may damage the mold.
Thanks a million!
