When I have a big and especially long box as seen here, I need to add a support for the walls, otherwise the huge amount of silicone will bend the walls. That doesn’t look good nor will this save me any silicone, and the box might burst.

Registration keys are important in this step. These are essential for two-part molds.

It’s similar to huge fish tanks, they also have a support like these, it prevents them from breaking. I prefer to have a burst mold box over a burst fish tank, though.

I’m using the cap of a pen here to make the keys.

Make sure the clay is filled to the edges in a clean line, and the surface is flat.
