made the top half of the mould today. apart from gelling up a bit quick, fine. bit of effort but the plug came out the mould a treat.
hope it works as well when i do the bottom half and then the final product.
thanks for the help

The Seaview is me , but I think I need a bit more research before attempting this build.. Colin is doing another build but i suppose the principles are the same .

It all helps...and with something like this any info is of use.

As before I need to get some practice with grp in , so as recomended I am going to find something already made I.e. bowl with indent patterns or similar and give it a try..
