I was wondering if anyone has used WSF as a mold for resin casting. I know that the surface is porous and gritty, but with enough wax/release, do you think I could cast 2 part polyurethane (smooth-on) resin into a multi-part mold. For the application I am considering, I think producing a rigid mold would be better than printing my positive and making silicone molds.

Thanks, that's full of the info I want! I have so many ideas if I can trim my molds light enough to afford them!
