I would appreciate some links to technical information or videos showing the process of making two-piece molds. I have done many regular molds; so I am not unfamiliar with the process. To be more specific; making large two piece press molds.........very large. like 40" x 30" large. Building my own ram press is not an issue either.

TY Mdo..

 

That certainly put me in the right direction. Others came up, that showed much larger molds - 30-60".. which is more in line with where I want to go. I knew reinforcing mesh would be needed; but was not exactly sure about the placement.  Did a forum search, those likewise were for the usual pottery mold system/s.  Again TY.

Did you see the video of the Horny Toad Mold?  It came up on the right-hand side.   https://www.youtube....h?v=C-iVrtfWDHQ

 

A good way of making a two part model.
