so do kings, machine mart, any builders shops, paint shops etc

The unibond stuff seemed to turn to a rubbery foam rather than solid

If you are making a mould then you should make it from fibreglass or P40...

Use some car wax as a parting compound. You need to use LOADS so that the fibreglass cannot stick to the item you are making a mould out of. So it needs to be a thick white layer. Then slap on the fibreglass...

No, you should use a parting compound like car wax if you are doing it properly.

Well, thats the way I have done it every time I have laid up carbon fibre...
