Needing some tips for resin casting masks

So like the title kinda says, I’m wanting to get into making custom resin mask/pieces does anyone know helpful tips or some videos?

i found this video on youtube a year ago, this guy casts a lot of things and seems like a professional so this might be worth a try

the craftsman also has a few videos on mold making which may also be helpful. nothing bionicle-specific but it might still be helpful since he goes pretty in depth with the molding process

if you are succesful please share your process so we can make resin cast bionicle masks more common

How’re you planning on making your masters?

I don’t know what that means, ive literally just picked up the idea of resin casting

A master is what you use to make the mold for your cast, aka you make 1 mask and then reproduce it in resin

oh that, like i said ive got no clue, my best guess is some kind of silicon or other rubbery material

That would be the mold material itself, I’m asking how you’re getting the design into the mold. Are you sculpting the masks by hand? Kitbashing them together? 3D printing?

oh probably just use a real mask if that doesn’t work my next best thing would be to use the school 3d printer
