mould making

What material is used for actually making the mould ? I understand making plug, building the box for the mold, parting plate, and then pour in..... what? And where do you get the material for the mould ? Thanks in advance.

OK.. got that. 1st of 8. But still curious about molding material. Is that somewhere between parts 2 and 8 ? Didn't get those ones yet. But thanks for reply. Only one all day!

Many mold are made with:

1) Fiberglass, Epoxy or Polyester
2) Polymer Casting Compounds - Urethane, Polyester, Epoxy, Silicone
3) Plaster.

I'd recommend putting the time in to watch all 8 episodes.
