Fun with Molding and Casting

Here are some pictures of some parts that I have cast. I attempted the Anubis mask that fits vintage Pharoid figures and Microman Command 2 figures, Lobros antennae, Lobros shield and Lobros cuffs.

I also tried to cast the Kronos gun, the beak from a green New Acroyear, the claw hands and missiles from a New Acroyear, and the head from a Super Microman Dash Wing.

As you may be able to see with the shield and some of the guns, the casts were often plagued by bubbles. All of the Anubis masks were plagued by small bubbles. In fact most were plagues by small bubbles which may render them useless. Fortunately the Microman head and a couple of the missiles are minimally affected.


  1. Have you had any luck casting translucent plastics? My boyfriend just bought a vintage Kronos figure and less than 2 days later, the cat knocked it over and shattered the wings...

  2. I have yet to experiment with translucent plastics.
