Louis Bou’s latest book featuring JEMTOY
JEM TOYs in your Mail Box!
Hey man, I bought the e-book version of your book the other day and its great. I sculpted my first little figure this week and was gonna save up some money to buy some smooth on.
I ended up searching for DIY mold making materials and came across oogoo. Have you tried making anything with this?
It’s silicone caulking and corn starch mixed together with some mineral spirits mixed in to thin it and make it pourable.
I made a test mold that was really sloppy, but it worked! And the over all cost was just a few dollars.
When I’m off this week I’m gonna try to do a better mold and see if I can get a good cast out of it.
Just wondering if its anything you’ve messed around with!
Thanks for the book, it’s awesome!

Hey West, thanks for the email. I’ve only played with the Smooth-On products, but I’ll check out the oogoo, with a name like that, I’ve gotta try it. THANKS for the tip. Keep on casting! Jay~
Super Cooper Berella is a good buddy of mine. I have been lucky enough to have been part of several of his art shows in his little home town of Los Angeles, California. We met in an on line forum through our mutual love of making paper toys. As fate would have it, I’m also a big fan of Barry from Storage Wars fame who just got his own A & E television show, Barry’d Treasure. What a hoot it is to see Barry checking out Super Cooper’s massive toy collection, and a great honor to see my resin toys featured. My Bat Winged Gomper and a couple Swamp Boggers made it to the final edit. Thanks to one and all, and big hugs out to Cooper’s amazing mom, Johnny Berella for getting all the release forms and paper work in order to make it all happen.
