My ever curious mind decided it wanted to explore the process of casting some medieval cottages.  The original was made out of foam core and gesso.  I made a mold in RTV silicon - pretty much wrecking the original.  I then popped out a bunch of these in resin and with some minimal painting, I've got a Gothic trailer park!  I just need to get my butt in gear and finish some of these knights that I'm making.


  1. Are those pure resin? Or did you use some sort of filler?

  2. Hi Mr. Chicago, its a two part resin - Part A Part B 50/50 mix - made by quick cast. No filler. I used a method calls slush casting where I dropped the resin in the bottom of the mould and rolled it around as it cured, building up layers of resin around the edges of the mould. This takes some patience - but its a way of casting hollow forms without filling them.
