Vanilla Joe, first cast

In the meantime, I've managed put the pieces into mold boxes and make some molds. The first cast looks good, except for one spot on his left elbow - which will need a new mold to fix I think, we'll see.

Here's the first cast without any cleanup. I'm using a cut mold, after watching a lot of Robert Talone's videos on YT, and this is now my preferred method. A lot less work than a two-piece mold, with better (or no!) mold lines + flash, and I have the chance to make round molds, which seal better with rubber bands than box molds. The setup takes a bit more thinking though, because I have to plan the cut and pretty much go in blindly with the knife and try not to ruin it…
