Faun Costume - Horn Sculpt by lauraneko Faun Costume - Horn Sculpt by lauraneko
Here's the sculpt for the horns I'll be making. I'm going to making a mold from this, and hopefully eventhing will go smoothly so I can get to casting a set in latex.

I'm afraid I don't know of any. Casting and making molds is completely new to me, and I'm going in to this with no more than a few notions of how I've heard it's done. And this is simple - full sculptures get very complicated, and often involve cutting the sculpt apart in order to make a workable mold.

If you have any sculpts that you intend to only cast in plaster and are suitable for a rubber mold (no pointy or outstretched bits that would break while taking it out of the mold), you can get liquid latex and just brush over the entire thing. Do as many layers as needed to get a nice, thick coating that won't tear easily, pop out the original, then you can cast copies in plaster (maybe other materials, provided it won't stick to the latex).
