Casting rubber tyres

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

I'm looking to copy some car tyres that are no longer provided in a manufacturers re-released kit.

Ideally, I'd like to make them in a black, rubbery material similar to the original tyres. Done loads of resin casting before, but this is all new to me. I've found some of the materials options bewildering, so:

Has anyone here done it and if so what are your preferred products; both for the mould itself and the tyre copy?

Many thanks in advance. :)

Alec Tirranti sell black rubbery casting (for positives) solutions, not sure how hard they are.

If you are after scale effect bulge maybe even consider an easter egg making approach of slosh it around inside and pour out approach, then repeat, until thickness suits the weight.

 

Let us know how it goes.
