"Make And Cast Your Own Latex Molds"

squish, squish.
poke, poke poke .... take that you nasty old bubbles!
After all the squishing and poking I pour in more hydrostone but I still do not fill the mold. Now it's time to start putting the mother mold on to support the latex mold.
After I have the whole thing put together I hold it all together with rubber bands. I add more hydrostone filling the mold almost to the top.
I will use either an old, cheap paintbrush or my finger to "brush" the inside of the mold to break loose any bubbles sticking to the surface of the mold. I will also tap the mold with my hand to bring bubbles up to the surface.
