Molding Barrel

Finished sculpting a MH barrel half. Not terribly exciting but is my first complete green stuff sculpt (I’m sure thousands of people have sculpted barrels, boxes and chests to start with)! Poured the mold for it yesterday and it set pretty quickly – I think what little Ultrasil RTV I have left might be getting past its use by date. My first cast plaster barrel came out very well. Need to do a quick run and get together enough halves for a handful of barrels for terrain. Alternately I could use the last of the RTV on another barrel mold. One problem is I sculpted the barrel half on a plaster cast 40k drum half (for scale purposes) and sealed the plaster with acrylic house paint. Unfortunately the gs doesn’t adhere too well to this mix so my master may peel apart after some time.
