Adam,

I used to spend crazy time making the plugs completely scratch free and use only wax as the release. I found that I still had some sanding to do on the edges and maybe something stuck and I had to fix it etc.

My system has been worked out over many years and the results are always good. The key for me is a very thin PVA coat as an aid to the release. Not a full barrier as normally done to stop the resin from touching the surface. Its still 10 coats of Mold Wax then the mist coat.
Sanding the texture is minimal work for me, most people would not notice the texture if they look at the mold.

For me I know there are other systems and I always read what your doing as well. Great stuff by the way.

Dave
