Smooth On Products for casting and duplicating miniatures

 

Smooth on makes a nice variety of products for casting and duplicating miniatures. These products are perfectly suited to casting very small miniatures with a lot of extremely fine detail. I use their products in several of my tutorials that you can follow.

If you are new to casting minis Smooth On is a great product to get you started in this really fun hobby. The following pictures are some examples of what you can cast.

 

 

 

The miniature dwarf

This is a dwarf that I sculpted and I use this along with the smooth on to make a two part mold. That tutorial is here: Make a two part mold

 

Cast Treasure chests

This picture shows a treasure chest that I have cast into two duplicates using the smooth on. This was done in a faster and easier one part mold. I have a tutorial that shows you how to do this: Casting a one part mold

 

The Smooth On Products


Smooth On rubber mix

Smooth-On Oomoo 30 Silicone - 2.8 lbs, Oomoo 30 Silicone

This is the stuff that you mix together and pour. It forms the rubber mold.

 

Smooth on plastic

Smooth-On Smooth-Cast 300 - Smooth-Cast 300 - This is the stuff you use to make the duplicate. You cast this material into the rubber mold.

For reproducing fine detail from original models. Or for reproducing sculptures, prototype models, cold cast bronze, decorative jewelry, etc. 900 and 300 molding and casting compounds can work together or separately.

 

The Complete Kit

Moldmaking kit Moldmaking & Casting Pourable Starter Kit - Mold rubber can be used to capture exact detail from any model. This starter kit will allow you to make a rubber mold of a small, simple 2 or 3 dimensional model using silicone rubber. Then pour our fast cast plastic to make one or more reproductions of the original. If you are an absolute beginner to casting then you might want to consider getting this kit. It has everything you need to get started including the casting materials and mold making materials. I have this kit and I use it for some of my tutorials. It actually will save you money because it gives you reasonable quantities of the varous needed things. You would pay more if you try to buy things separately. It also comes with a DVD that shows you exactly how to do everything.
