Resin Casting a 3D tree?
Hello once again helpful people of the forums.

To start off, I know how to cast, I make masks and props with silicone moulds then either roto-cast or just fill them with resin.

But I've never tried to make anything like this.

I want to make a clear 3D leafless tree standing at around 18". Obviously with all the branches and everything I can't simply make the tree from clay then smother it with silicone, as I'd never get the mould off the clay.

So how would I go around casting something with a complicated shape like this? One branch at a time or something?

Many thanks for your help ^^
