"Re-casting?"

Posted in Custom Workstation

I've heard stuff about re-casting figure parts, and I have a question: How do you re-cast plastic parts? Like, do you make a negative of the parts and then put like molten plastic into the negatives or something?

You make a mold, then you inject the 2 part mixed chemical thru the opening and stick it in a pressure chamber for about an hour. The only thing that heats up are the chemicals from being mixed together. (about 120+)

This is the simple version, there is a lot more to it and takes several months to get the method down.
