Casting test-mold material study

Did some looking into different ways to make molds for resin casting.  We used a wood board with 1in pockets drilled into the surface with various materials lining the pockets. We chose, from left to right; scotch tape, aluminum foils in two methods, saran wrap, scotch tape with a bolt, silicone mold condisinor, silicone, plastic cup with a dye test.

Learned how to make simple silicone molds recently and tried casting resin in the molds. First batch the molds worked great but the resin I have must have expired, hence the discoloration and syrup texture.
