I ordered 5 of these molds HO to O scale indicated, unseen other than the site pictures. Any pointers on using them and how to color the plaster after.. I have been impressed with the Bragdon weathering powders so im thinking these molds maybe a good product. Thanks steve
As with all of their products Steve I found the Bragdon molds to be very good. My only experience is with the latex rock molds. I used their 'cast satin' resin product. The resin is very light and very strong. You coat the mold with a thin film of petroleum jelly, spray on lacquer spray paint as a release agent, and then do the pour. I found it to be so strong I did not need to fill the hollow void behind the casting. Do wear gloves though as that stuff itches like crazy if it gets on your skin. Lance Mindheim
the bragdon people sell and highly recommend using pigment powders, which are made into thin washes. They avoid using acrylics because those craft paints have some white in them as a base. To me, a thinned craft paint produces a suitable wash, but bragdon insists this does not produce the "translucent" quality of washes made with pigments.
