    What kind of stores should I look in to find silicone mold stuff? I didn't see any on the michaels website and I'd like to get started on this project this weekend.

    Candy maker stuff, bigot lobby {hobby lobby} Michaels if they are still around places like that as they usually sell them for candy making or candles or things like that

    I’m gonna say, the best moulding/casting resource I ever found is the BITY channel on YouTube. Tons of well-produced videos about casting everything from foam knife props to life size mannequins.
    They also happen to sell everything they use in their videos but I’ve never actually looked into that so I don’t know how competitive/readily available they are. Techniques are all gold though.
    This one specifically is about miniatures:


    And this is about a clear resin solution:

    Around my parts (MN) Michaels has a bunch of silicone molds for candy-making, but also putty for making molds, and pouring resin.
