Got to spend the day at my favorite sculpting and casting supply store, " Reynold's Advanced Materials" in Orlando. Took their "Intro to Mold Making and Casting" class. We have a Q&A session on Thursday on using "Lifecasting". Hopefully we'll take casting up a level this year.
The class was about 20 people, some jewelers, a couple of wood craftsmen, a taxidermist and a sculptor or two, but no other haunters. I was a little surprised considering their showroom examples are nearly all props and scary stuff.
