Holger Erricson designed these 40mm English Hunting Scene moulds, originally carved out of wood, with his characteristic anatomical correctness and lightness of touch. Originally each of the fox & dogs were supplied in seperate moulds, we now include all the dogs and the fox in one mould. The rider and horse will take about half a bar of metal to cast with at least.
VENTING THIS MOULD.
If you have difficulty getting this mould to fill you could try venting the mould. Vents are thin channels that are cut into the mould surface, which enables air trapped in the mould to escape. Before cutting the vents warm the mould as this makes the rubber easier to cut. With a sharp craft knife cut 1mm channels from the part that is not filling to the outside of the mould usually to the top of the mould. Sometimes it is easier to drill a 1.5mm hole through the mould body and add a vent to the outside of the mould. You will get a small amount of flash on each vent, but this is easy to remove.
