|We store our molds face down to keep out dust & debris.|
Here is a step by step of the process.
Remember we are a mom and pop team so no assembly lines or automation just hard work!!
|I mix enough 2 part Urethane rubber for about 12 molds.|
|Clean Molds are sprayed with release.|
|Now I fill to the ledge.|
|The "Beast" will hold 24 molds.|
The molds are vacuumed to remove all of the little air bubbles so that they don't stick to the surface of the detail.
"Don't want it to look like a face has a wart on it's nose :)"
Left: The gauge shows that the chamber has reached maximum vacuum. At this point air is being pulled out of the rubber and looks like it is boiling!
|Molds are set out to cure|

|Ready to trim, notice the edges|
|I used to trim with scissors, this is much better.|
Branding is done with an indelible ink that will stick to the rubber.
Even if the packaging is gone, you can tell who made the mold.
|Molds have a little excess after pouring.|
|Clean edges and ready to package and ship.|
A standard paper cutter removes all of the edges left on the mold.
