How To Make a Silicone Mold of a Fish For Taxidermy

This moldmaking video shows the process of molding an actual trout for taxidermy or propmaking purposes. The materials used are Ecoflex® 00-35 silicone and Smooth-Cast® 61D tinted with So-Strong pigments. Ecoflex® 00-35 is a very fast setting silicone rubber which is not affected by the low temperature of the fish specimen. Smooth-Cast® 61D is a mercury-free impact resistant urethane casting resin.

    Removing the fins to mold and glue back on is pretty slick! How you got the Brown to stay still and strait, is part I struggle with. After the fin removal, they tend to be non-compliant.


    This may sound odd, but im trying to find a good material for a stressball. The kinds you buy at the store. Would this be okay to use? It would have a squishy filler on the inside of the silicone.


    im a kid and if i ever had a chance to make this i will make tons of it and keep it as a toy XD
