Brainstorming for an idea is the hardest part. Once you get pass that, everything starts to fall together. I sketched out some ideas of what I wanted to cast. After that, I found out that silicone molds are relatively cheap to make and they can withstand heat. This means that I can safely melt down acrylic using an old saucepan in a well ventilated area and pour it straight into the mold.
Gathering acrylic is one of the exciting parts. I have to find scrap acrylic that has the right color for my mold. Looking around, great places such as the laser cutter room has acrylic scraps.
After that, silicone to make a mold, and a figure to create a mold of. I still need to see if everything will work out. A test for how the acrylic will melt and form will be done as well.
