    The methods of casting several identical parts in resin is fairly well known using silicon
    rubber moulds but the cost of the silicon rubber can be expensive.

    My better half has brought the following web site to my attention.

    http://art-and-sole.blogspot.co.uk/2013/08/silicone-molds.html

    It deals with a very cheap recipe of making the moulding rubber along with several video links.

    Have a read, it seems very easy and cheap

    I'm off to the shop for the ingredients tomorrow.... soon find out if its idiot-proof !?!?
