Making moulds with silica gel

After printing and casting the original pieces of samples, I made moulds for repeating them.

I used silica gel to make the moulds, and poured liquid resin inside. I tried clear resin and resin mixed with acrylic colors. Some pieces were good, some were bad because of air bubbles.

I cut the moulds in different ways as well. Trying to find out a better way to cut them out and good for repeating.
