What Else is Required?

Release Agents
You have selected the rubber you require for the casting material you want for your finished project. Now you need a suitable release agent to ensure the casting material releases easily from your mould.
We recommend Craft Release #25 when using plaster against plaster. Craft Release #23 for polyurethanes such as CraftMold rubber and J Wax and PVA release for ClearCast Casting Resin and other polyester and epoxy resins.
Silicone rubbers fortunately rarely require a release agent but if one is required a thin film of petroleum jelly is usually all that is required.
