Instructions for the first part of the cosplay belt buckle I am making for the character of Princess Barbara from the Ubisoft game Rayman Legends. This was done as part of a Makerspace course I am taking at St Catherine University for my Masters of Library and Information Science. I hope to add a part two once i have completed the project.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
  1. Air dry clay
  2. Oomoo molding rubber
  3. Smooth-cast 300 casting resin
  4. Smooth-on Superseal
  5. Mold release
  6. Clay tools
  7. Plastic cups, two in a medium size, and one large one
  8. Paper bowl
  9. Plastic spoons
  10. Hot glue gun and glue sticks

Step 2: Sculpt Your Original

Picture of Sculpt Your Original
  1. Using your air dry clay, sculpt your image.
  2. Allow to dry completely following manufacturers instruction. Remember though, the thicker you make your sculpt, the higher the chances it will take longer than normal to dry. This need a few extra days before i was comfortable that it was completely dry. So it is a good idea to give yourself plenty of time.

Step 3: Making the Mold

Picture of Making the Mold
  1. Calculate the amount of liquid rubber you will need
  2. Hot glue your original in your clean paper bowl
  3. Apply sealer to sculpt and container and let dry
  4. Apply mold release to sculpt and container and let dry
  5. Measure equal amounts of part A and part B into your medium cups. Combined they should total the amount of rubber you need
  6. Mix the two parts together in your larger cup, making sure to scrape the sides and bottom
  7. Pour rubber into container, starting from the lowest point.
  8. Let cure following manufacture instructions. For oomoo rubber this is six hours
  9. Demold your original
  10. Your mold is now ready to be used for casting, which will be covered in step 2.
