How to Make Silicone Moulds and Resin Cast Stuff

It has been awhile since I’ve shared some cool Industrial Design goodies. And since 2013 is my year of Industrial Design do check out these two awesome articles on how to make homemade silicone moulds and then use them to resin cast things like toys.

It is really not that complicated or difficult, but there are quite a few steps involved. So when I saw the two blog articles on silicone moulds by folks at Tesselate, I had to share them with you.

1) The one part silicone mould is great for housings with a flat side in-between the 2 halves.

2) The two part silicone mould is great for spheres or cylindrical housings. You could also use this two part mould to make a housing that is cored out and has a wall thickness.

Enjoy and do pick up one of their cool limited edition robot toys while you are there?

    I like to try this out myself some day. But I heard the resin is kind of expensive so the cored out method is probably the best way to do this.
