some modelling clay to seal it at the bottom.
Now I’m ready to do
the first silicone casting.
Once the first half of the mold is created and

will be visible in the actual cast.
Here the two molds.
All the holes make it easier to later fit the two halves together, when

They looks perfect.
Altough there are some minor bubbles that I’ll fill with putty.
