    D&D Mimic lock

    I sculpted sculpey clay on a wood block and baked it. I molded the mimic lock with Smooth On 20T silicone and cast one in rigid foam and some in Smooth On 325 with resin powder and then paint. I drill out the hoop holes and used a black plastic hanger painted to match with a set screw in the...

    Has anyone ever tried it on any of your props that needed repair and if so what was the result ?
