    Well,Last weekend I ran foam and failed! But not upset.I learn from my mistake.Running foam rubber is very tricky
    I just Love the feel of it

    I started SAT 1:30 pm
    Large Bowl foam Batch 2.5
    375 grams HIGH SOLIDS FOAM BASE
    75 grams MICRO-CELLULAR FOAMING AGENT™ 450 grams
    37 grams RAPID CURE™ CURING AGENT 487 grams
    In a separate cup weight out
    35 grams of GELLING AGENT
    2 grams ammonia
    Click here to watch mixing-foam
    ROOM SCHEDULE (70-74° F) (43%)15-1/2 minutes Total Time
    Start 15:30
    1. (mixing) Start at lowest speed to mix ingredients, slowly (over the course of 1 minute) increase to speed 12
    AT 14:30
    2. (whipping) FROTH at speed 12 for 5 minutes
    At 9:30
    3.(medium refine) speed 4 for 4 minutes
    At 5:30
    4.(ultra-refining) speed 2 for 4 minutes adding 2 grams ammonia
    At 1:30
    5. Add GELLING AGENT, 15sec. then color 15sec
    At 1:00
    6. Turn bowl backwards by hand to mix gel for 30 sec , then
    Let mixer run until 15-1/2 minutes have elapsed. OFF
    Quick ,I poured into the mold , Put the die mold in place .
    Foam gelled in 20 sec.
    Cooked 11 hours at 125 deg.
    2in.around the edge of the mask Did not cure.Because that is the closest to the walls of the oven.
    Some bubbles,I think because it started to gel some as it pour into mold.

    The oven 8 , 8"x8"x8" cinder blocks
    1 ,2x8" 8'
    6, 2'x 2'x1" plywood
    1 floor vent
    4 door hinges
    1 ,50'x 2'foil insulation
    1 computer fan
    1 single burner
    1, 18"x18" 3/8 expanded medal

    1.The room should have been colder,Or added more ammonia
    2. Bigger oven ,I used 2'x2' plywood,Should used 3'x3'
    3. Use flow enhaner
    4.Foam Batch 2.0 ,not 2.5
    5.Flow Enhancer
    6 CHANGE FOAM MIX SCHEDULE

    Now building a bigger oven 3'x3'x3'
    Thanks

    It came great, It was short in 1 place near the top right vent ,This spot would be cover with hair anyway. 4or 5 little bubbles ,But no away like the 1st one.The whole thing cure ,11hours and the 10th turn on the heat up to 140 ,So 10 hours at 126 to 129.
    I think I will keep the batch size and make sure I scrape the bowl clean,Or injected it.
    The oven worked Great. Oven cost $150.00 to make.
    So, Now what ,I will get all of the mechs done and set eyes place.The eyes are in place but not just right. A couple mm forward or back.And then measure lip springs.
    So ,Getting the whole skull thing working and talking ,ears casted too. And run another skin.
    I love MonsterMakers Foam.
