 HELP! Molding my SR Boot soles...


Hey guys. As I have mentioned, I am sculpting the SR boot soles. Well I pretty much have the sculpting part done, now I need help molding it. I'm not totally sure of how the best way to go about it is. I was talking to TimDrakeRobin and he suggested a 2 peice injection mold. Something along the lines of molding original boot soles of the boots I intend to put the SR soles on and then making a positive of the original soles and placing them in the 2 piece mold of the SR soles and then pouring the urethane in. That way the soles would conform exactly to the boots I want to put them on.

I just need some clarification on this process or advice in another direction if there is a better method. I am also unsure as to which materials would be best for molding these items. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!

Here is a pic of the SR sole sculpture that I want to mold...

Could you not make a mold of that using whatever you'd normally use, then put whatever liquid you plan to mold the soles out of around the boot, then clamp the 2 halves of the mold on? :huh :ohoh :cookoo

I don't do that sort of modelling, so I wouldn't have any other suggestions other than that one, vague as it is, it might work. I'm sure you and Bryan could work something out, men of your talents. :up :wink

that was pretty much what i suggested, I think it will work, but I think he wants the opinion of someone who has made soles or the likes before.
