question for molders and casters

Hey there,

I know I ahve thought about this in the past, I can't recall if I ahve asked. If this is not new, I'm sorry.

I am casting in cold foam with a layer of latex to skin my masks, and protect my molds.

My current molds are made out of a plaster called Ultra-cal 30.

I am using your slip cast latex.

I'm thinking about remaking my molds in a two part resin (Quick cast or something similar with a longer pot life.). A friend cautioned me that the latex would not cure on anything that wasn't plaster. Is this true? If I can use the latex with the resin, I will be able to make more durable (I think!) and lighter molds.

I just tested overnight by dipping the end of a claw in the latex, and it cured just fine. My only concern is the inside and deep cervases of a mask. Will it still cure then?

Do you think that this will work?

Thank you for your time,

desert cat WIP

My first real critter with taxidermy style eyes. Loosly based on serval cats. A prototype of sorts for my next personal suit (it will be similar to my avatar).

A work-in-progress. I have to add whiskers, airbrush details, add more spots, trim some stuff, add a neck piece, and the back of the head is not sewed (I just ductaped it together at the back for the pics, can be seen in one or two.)

I am looking for feedback before I finish it totally. Let me know what you think.
