Thanks Hector!

I used OOMOO 30 to make the molds and Smooth Cast 325 to make the duplicates. When I reorder, I am going to use the Smooth Cast 326 (I think) as it cures in 2 hours instead of the ten minutes that the 325 cures in. Allows it to settle more.

Looks great. The paint looks metallic or pearlized. It's a nice effect!

Thanks everyone for taking the time to comment.

I used Golden's GAC-100 to make my paint more opaque to build up with the airbrush. The pearlized effect is if I seal the layers in Krylon's Matte finish. If you don't want that effect, you can use Dullcoat to bring it back to a more natural color.

Thanks again!
