I use Easy Cast by Castin' Craft and its kinda like a 50/50 for me. Half the time my batches cure fully in 24 hours and pop out great, and then on the other half, they are still sticky to the touch and somewhat soft after a full 24 hours. I mixed for 3 minutes with this batch just as i did the batch i made the day prior, yet this one is being pesty. If i leave them alone for another day or so will they eventually fully harden? Or if they have cooled back down and are still sticky are they trash-can destined? Nothing in the cast itself is wrong they just arent fully hard yet like they others have been. No tempt change in my work room, nothing i altered...
Also, is rebound 25 silicone rubber okay to cast noses and pawpads with or should i use something different? Where do i find pigments for silicone? And is it best to make the clay positive, plaster on top then pour the silicone directly into the plaster mold or does it need a mold release first?
And on another note about eyes. I followed Beetlecat's tutorial on painting resin eyes for the follow-me effect, though when i put the unpainted half onto the painted half not only does it magnify the pupil but when i turn the eye, some directions it follows me and others it just goes all white/clear. Am i doing something wrong or is it only meant to follow you at certain angles/degrees?
