I tried using a product from Bare Metal Foil Company called "Por-A-Kast". It is a two part (catalyst and polymer) liquid that you mix and then pour into a mold (of course, the trick part is that you have to make a mold, which is where my abilities and efforts collided). The material you end up with is almost like a plastic, and is very workable. In its liquid state, it will form up very well into a mold, and find the smallest detail. I'd like to work with it more, but having all thumbs, my dexterity suffers. :giggle

Good luck on your efforts, and let's see some results.

:cheers
