Hey! Just curious, but how many pours do you get from your molds of the larger props? (I recently learnt about this kinda mold prop making from Adam Savage's tested series and it fascinates me.)
Pours as in how many pulls can I get from each? Or how much resin I use?
I use around 12 Pours of 500 ml of resin on the Buster Sword for a complete sword.
For how many casts I can get from each mold, it depends on the mold. If you use more rigid silicone like the Buster Sword, you might get 20-50 casts depending on wear and tear. My Falchion Blade lasted for 80 because it was a more flexible silicone.
This Buster Sword mold is different though, it’s a Matrix mold, so if the silicone breaks down I’ll be able to inject silicone into the hard jacket and make a new layer of silicone. It’ll last a ton longer than a regular mold.
