Square and Compasses Reproduction

Freemason Square and CompassesI finally got around to using a new batch of RTV Silicone to make a mold of a really nice Square and Compasses. The Freemasons guilds of olde would be proud to see a brother whom is producing something to share.

The mold was made with Alumilite “Quick-Set” RTV Silicone mold-making rubber. It is a two part compound. The first part is the RTV silicone Base which came in a 15.5 oz. container. The second 1.5 oz. container is for the Alumilite “Quick-Set” RTV Catalyst.  The mixing ratio is 10:1 so it was pretty much a no brainer to dump the catalyst into the silicone and mix vigorously! I started at about 5:00pm, then built up a clay barrier from sulfur free clay and then poured. 13 hours later I have the mold.

    Where did you get the original from which you made the mold? Is the product made from molten metal or some sort of compound? How durable? Blah blah blah, DETAILS PLEASE!

    The original is cast in low temp Tin. The final product is made from Alumilite. It is very durable, won't degrade or decay and is UV neutral. I sell them here
