silicone mold: 2 hole resin spacers
all of the fooling around i've done with resin in the past few months has stemmed from wanted to replicate these spacers:
they were acquired without any history- no idea where they were purchased, or when. i've been looking for almost a year, but still haven't seen anything similar. enter silicon molds. after a practice run in mold making, i felt a bit more confident that this could work...
the big concern was the holes. i haven't made a 2 part mold since college (we won't talk about how long ago that was), so i figured i'd just mold the pieces with the holes filled and drill them out later. initially, i filled the holes all the way with super sculpey, making it flush with the top and bottom of the pieces. but then i thought, if these are being drilled, shouldn't the holes have less resin to get through? i punched the sculpey out of the holes and cut the amount in half. then filled them up again, making sure that they were totally sealed in the inside.

i can't wait to fill 'er up!
