The big guy and his little buddy begin the ten day latex mold build. They just got their first coat of liquid latex and will get approximately nineteen more coats. In the photo, the big guy on the left is a plaster casting that I fixed a few things on that caused problems in mold I made of him. He developed a tear around his tail that this new mold hopefully won’t.

How long do you have to wait between layers? (Just curious, does the latex smell kind of like fish guts + ammonia?)

Yes, like ammonia. About 12 hours between coats. It needs to dry before the next coat goes on but not cure or else the following coat will delaminate. One coat in the morning and then one at night seems to work. Temp and humidity affect drying time. It’s an exercise in patience building.
