My workbench is completely covered in mould(s)!
As a way of reducing the repetition and speeding up the building process for my Jurassic Reich and Incursion projects, I have made a number of master models and created moulds, so that I can repeatedly cast as many copies as I need.
In particular, I made a 7″ x 4″ section of random stone wall that I cast and use as cladding over a base made of foam or card stock. I also made moulds of a brick pillar, some steps, and several floor tiles for my 3D “Incursion” game table.
Guilty secret time…
As well as creating my own, I just bought two moulds from Hirst Arts for making terracotta roofs and cobblestones. Both of these are of the highest quality, but I think the cobblestones are too exaggerated and so I may not use it for this project.
So after years of sneering at people who use HirstArts moulds because they can’t scratch build their own terrain, I have fallen into their ranks. Oh the shame!
Pics to follow when I get near my camera.
The boxed mould is one that is still setting (takes a few hours). It holds some Incursion floor tile master models.
