So here is the finished hand sculpt in all its textured glory. I baked it for two minutes in the oven to stop the texture getting damaged. I forgot to take a photo of the next bit but I laid it all up in plasticine.
First half of the two part mold. Had a happy moment when Martin told me it was pretty damn good (not a direct quote).
I cleaned away all the left over plasticine, to prepare for the next part.
Here I have added some drainage points for any excess silicone to escape later on.
Boxed up for a second time, thoroughly sealed and Vaseline/lubricated for easy separation later.
It still needs a little bit of clean up but here's the finished two part mold for Pip's hands and arms.
