Epoxy Clay + Silicone Rubber + Epoxy Resin = Cool DIY toy!

Make your own geometric shaped toy by breaking down your object into non complex geometric parts. This procedure is optimized so that the piece is easily cast and reproduced with the use of a silicone mold and epoxy resin.

I picked this step by step project because of its accessibility and high end result possibilities. Hope this works as kick starter for a lot of people out there that have the drive and want to make their own toys but didn't know where to get started.
