Going to be attempting my first fiberglass project within the next 2 weeks.

I'd like to get a little crazy with it and make some figures/shapes within the fiberglass.

I plan to mold them out of some form of material, and either glass the mold in or the shape of the mold into the enclosure.

This is what i need help on. What material would be best to accomplish this?
Either i have to sculpt it or if i can make a mold out of it.

Any1 have pictures or this done?

Also best place to get fiberglassing materials??? Thx guys!

best place for glass resin / mat is generally (i'm told) a marine / boat supply shop.

Will try there.

What about any online spots? Found some but they seem either expensive or shady to me.

Any1 know about the mold??
