You coulld, but it might take you 5 years and cost 10 times what other mold rubber costs.

You have to build latex up in layers. Paint it on, let it dry... repeat over and over and over until the rubber is thick enough... it takes alot of time.

Alsso latex mold-builder is pretty expensive... and I'm pretty sure that it will break down faster because it is organic, not synthetic rubber.
