Movement trays take 2 - 2

I've not done much in the hobby lately. Work has been busy, plus our house is now on the market and I'm going to have to start packing stuff away ready to move out. Deep joy - not. Even so, I've made a little more progress with the movement tray for my Dux B. figures.

I've glued a layer of the trusty pizza box corrugated card on the bottom to bring up the depth, and smoothed out the edges and the insides of the cups with liquid nails. The next step will be to glue it down to a base and enclose it with foam core to make a silicone master mold from. The weather has warmed up to a remarkable degree so I shouldn't have any problems with the silicone.

Although nearly everything is going to be packed away, I'm going to keep going on this and a couple of other molding projects as-and-when. Who knows, I might clear my worktable enough to get a game in now and then.

Good Luck with the house! I dealt with packing up and moving house myself recently. Still getting stuff sorted out post-move.

And good luck with the movement trays! Making and casting your own is an approach I hadn't even thought of, so I'll be interested to see how it works out for you.

Looks promising and best of luck with the move, certainly not my favourite experience either.

Thank you, gentlemen! Yes, moving is a pain in the rear. It's a warm day today so I may go ahead with this.
