I may start toing latex prosthetics soon.
Is it necessary to cook the clay before you cast it?
And what kind of paint can I use on them?

I know how hard it is. XD I'm actually thinking to do my own pieces with a stronger mother-mold personally as I hate to scratch the plaster with my tools so I'm adding plaster-wrap layers for reinforcement. I'm excited to cast out a new-face soon too! I would have thought you would do a two-part mother-mold... would have made cleaning the negative easier. XD

I love the new snout Badger Man! It's so great to see how the design has evolved into an incredible and more stream-lined casting process. :D

Thank you :)

I think plaster is pretty old fashioned stuff to be using maybe.....but it is cheap! A 2 part mould? Still got to workout how to do it..... But the plasticine has proved itself extremely sticky and unremovable.... Maybe just standard clay would be better. Then the problems of the latex shrinking afterwards have to be seen to be believed.......:(

I'm going to try a 3rd snout and jaw. The shape of the one here is not right.......

Not all my workspace is there.... Sadly no room for a permanent forge, I have to move stuff out each time I use it......Luckily the portable forge came with little wheels on it!
