In regards to using silicone for moulding silicone you can use a spray which stops the silicone from adhering to the cast silicone. This same method can be used to stop 2 part silicone moulds sticking to the other half. The product I use is made by stoner A324 and is a silicone/silicone release. There is also a silicone diluent you can use with most silicone (not sure with the cuaking silicone) that can be used in proportion of no more than 10% in order not to loose the silicon properties.

I get all my silicone and pretty much all things I need for moulding and casting from http://www.amcsupplies.com.au/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=23 they have this dilutant. There is an equivalent supplier in melb if that is closer to you. http://www.dalchem.com.au/ I have bought some items of these guys too. Not sure if they stock the dilutant though. Hope this helps you   Smiley

I was looking at what one diluent was made of, d-Limolene.  I belive this is the citrus flavoring in sprite, 7up type drinks, it is a flavoring.  I always look at the MSDS the Material Safety Data Sheets that give you lots of information about the chemicals and effects they might have on people and handling info. Sometimes in high concentration the warnings are scary but when it is a very dilute solution then it could be edible.  Like water, essential for life but too much of it and you drown. The MSDS for a product will tell you how concentrated the chemicals are.  Acetic acid in very dilute solution is vinegar but the concentrated form is a very strong acid you don't want to breath, think we used to dissolve bones with the concentrated stuff.  when in doubt use gloves.

Thank you for sharing your tutorials, i created my first foam puppet with your pattern video and created the skin in silicone caulk. Total cots, just 5 euro for the complete puppet!

I thought I might show  the silicon skinning of a friend's dragon, to show that it can be done. :
