Pouring molds DIY

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~
