How to make a one-part mold by LimitlessEndeavours How to make a one-part mold by LimitlessEndeavours
Thanks to :icongraveatart:, whose Vurmling head i used for this tutorial and thanks to hubby who assisted me by playing the hand model! :heart:

You can't make your own mold/cast or don't want to waste money and material? I offer you my help! Like for :icongraveatart: i can make molds and casts from YOUR object for the fraction of the price you would spend on materials! Send me a note!

Have you seen my other tutorials?

I freaking love you for all of your tutorials! Huggle! 
Most people that make cool dolls like yours like to keep it all hush hush but you do all these lovely tutorials and even sell diy kits. I'm so wanting to buy one for a good practice of assembling a doll before I sculpt my own. I just need to decide which one I want and save up. >w<

But also I've been looking for stuff on resin casting for a while because I've been wanting to make my own garage kit figure. So thanks again! I am a dummy!

Thanks so much!

I'd suggest you get our DIY-Wolf for practice. It is the latest addition to the DIY-Kits we offer and the best designed doll, very "user friendly" regarding sewing, painting and assembling. :meow: Check our online store for availability www.limitlessendeavours.com

This might be a derpy question but does the clay need to be baked or does it matter?

Not derpy at all :meow: For a 2p-mold you should, since you have to build a clay bed where you squeeze your original in, as well when you flip the mold over to peel away this clay bed to create the second wall of the mold. Check out this example in my stash sta.sh/027w5z5d55lo

Hehe. Thank you for the reply! so for a one part mold it doesn't matter? I know I got a quote from you but I then thought how many I actually wanted to make and of different things so thought I would give it a shot first before I slammed you with orders lol.

Cheezez I was just about to fix my reply - I mistakenly thought I am answering to the new submission from today. Freak. I'm so sorry. My bad!

For a 1p-mold you don't have to necessarily bake it - if you are sure your mold will turn out just as you planned. But to be on the safe side, i'd suggest to bake your original - just in case your mold turns out bad.

I am about to start making some monster/creepy dolls....would it be better to make the claws/paws a solid resin for durability? Or doing a couple coats of this would suffice?

I suggest to cast all doll parts in resin for maximum durability!

This is so helpful! Thank you for sharing, but I do have 1 question... Can the molding components used in this tutorial be used with polymer clay like Sculpey? I want to make molds for future use (because I'm too lazy to sculpt a similar object from scratch lol) but I wanted to know if Mold Star was safe to use when making a mold for polymer clay. Thank you again!
