Step 15: Chapter 4- Terrain Molding & Casting- 5: Casting

  Prepare your mold for casting with a heavy spray of Ease Release.  Mix a batch of Smooth Cast 65D and brush it into your mold to create a sturdy impression coat.  You’ll want to fill the rest of your mold with a lighter weight resin and for that you’ll be using Feather-Lite.  Feather-Lite mixes with 1:1 ratio like the 65D.  The both Part A & B of the Feather-Lite will separate while they’re in their containers and will require a lot of stirring before you combine each component.   Mix a batch and pour.  The Feather-Lite will require at least 2 hours for it to cure.  Mix and pour as many batches as necessary until the mold has been completely filled with resin.  Also, and this is important, make sure that the mold is level when pouring your resin or the house will not sit right on the terrain.

Adorabrillo! I wonder what the total bill of materials came to? Timewise also? Did you have occasion to make additional copies of the house after having created perfect molds. Do you sell them online or something? Thank you
Josh, This is a wonderful step by step documentation of the creative process! What a charming, beautiful dollhouse. I'd love to live there! <br>
Thank you very much! This was a fun project because I was elaborating on my father's own designs and kind of continuing a tradition. I just wish I had more time to build them.
Wonderful Job, One of my favorites in the contest!
Very nice Josh! The detail is bonkers!
A-ma-zing! That is the best and most unique dollhouse I have ever seen! I got to get me one :)
Thank you! I'd love to make an entire series based on my dad's other designs. I learned a lot about what worked and what didn't. I think I could produce it again even faster.
