      This question comes through email by Lamar:

      Hi Im interested in making a two piece mold for my railroad spikes. What would be the best method. 1) sit the spike upright in a plastic cup and pour alumni lite silicone until it fills to the top of spike or make a two piece mold laying 2nd mold on top of 1st. I need your help on the two piece mold??

      Hi Lamar,

      You will need to mold your spike lying down flat.  It needs to have a front half and a back half, not a top and bottom.  If you pour it all in one piece, you will have a difficult time demolding it.

      If you need ideas on how to mold your spike, here is a good video from the team at Smooth On.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FQ1A7ZjTsx8
