When lightening a body or redistributing the weight of the body here's a little trick that might be helpful in determining the thickness of the body and where. Hold the body up to the light and you will see darker areas where the body is thicker and lighter areas where the body is thinner. I apologize for the pic, but it's tough to hold the object and camera steady... :-)
For all you casters out there you know about casting and casting residue. The residue that is left after the resin has cured. Well I have found a way to quickly and easily remove that resin residue without damaging the mold.
For those that might be interested, The secret to the chop is the under side.
This may be old hat for you, but for me it was a better idea moment. Sometimes when casting I realized after creating the RTV mold that I needed an additional vent hole. The problem is that when I tried to drill the hole the drill bit would drill through the RTV but would not create a hole. It would just split the RTV. When the bit was removed the RTV would close back together as if the hole never existed. So today I put the mold in the freezer for about three hours then took the mold out and then drilled the RTV to create a vent hole... and to my surprise and satisfaction I actually drilled a vent hole in the RTV mold. This now gives me the ability to correct vent hole mistakes and or omissions after the mold has been created!!
