Step 1: Plywood Positive

I Laser cut the skull model out of aircraft plywood (.0625")

Using Illustrator I drew one side and then mirrored the other side making it symmetrical.

This was the third one I made.

Step 2: Bondo

Bondo, yeah this messed with the mold material but it's cool.

Step 3: Mold

I used Mold Max 30, looks like I rigged something cause I didn't have enough material.

Step 4: Pour Plastic

I use Smooth Cast 300.

Step 5: DeMold

After the plastic cures, put out the Skull.
