I just spent the last hour cleaning bits of uncured latex out of the heart mold.

Poured it again, and discovered that it is cracked, and it leaks.

Which means I may have to re-sculpt a new heart and re-mold it.

That sucks!

Question: Is the heart-gag necessary? I didn't write one, so I'm curious as to where one shows up. If it's not, don't kill yourself for this. Just take it easy. You need to do that first and foremost.

Not necessary, but cool as hell. The Syiera vamp-killing inserts.

Plaster. It's kinda shitty latex for slush casting.

m. cracked and leaking's not so good for plaster.

you probably could patch it, but recarving your heart may be better overall anyway.

Well, I pulled a second casting that was better (I thinned the latex with water a bit) but it's really not at all sturdy. I may have to try silicone.

BTW, the cracking can be temporarily fixed with hot glue. :)

awesome. I'd guess that a plaster cast of that type needs to be lined in resin or poly or something. Hotglue, eh? good trick.
