The moulding process

To mould the head and body of the character I built styrene boxes around them in preparation to pour silicone over them. For the head mould I used wooden dowel extended from the eye sockets of the robot to create the pour holes. There is one bleed hole created from another piece of dowel holding the weight of the head upright from the recess I created on the underside.

For the body I created a pour hole by extending the neck of the robot, and I have made two bleed holes from wire rod extending out of the recesses where the legs will slot into.
