I need to create a mold from a piece of plastic that is roughly 24"x8". Answered

     I want to make a mold of a piece of colored plastic, the problem is the plastic is thin walled and fragile. I was wondering what the best mold material would be for it. I need to preserve the original so a gentle process would be the best. Any help would be appreciated and thanks in advance.

Liquid silicone or one of the other pourable molds. Put it in a tray and cover it with liquid silicone. like this.

Or look over on the right side under "RELATED".

Or search this site for "silicone"
