I'm ready to start making molds. First off can i rent pieces from anyone to make these molds? Here are my newbie question.

-What are molds made of?
-To make really strong armor what should I pour into the molds?
-What paint type/color looks best for the Halo 3 Mark VI Suit of Armor?
-Where do you get those beautiful gold shields on your helms?
-How much does NICE armor cost for the maker to make?
-Any good painting/weathering/battle scarring tips?
-Are weapons made basically the same way as armor?
-How do you apply fiber glass?
-Does anyone make real Chief Shoes as opposed to simple boot covers?
-Again, does anyone rent super accurate, unpainte armor for aking molds?
-How much profit is generally made on NICE armor?
-I love you guys for any help.
-That wasn't a question, nor is this.

Seriously this website is a drop of heaven for me. Any help is soooooo great. Once I'm up and running I plan on selling for very small profits because high prices make me sick, so the sooner I know the above info the sooner I am producing armor!!! Thank you guys so much and PLEEASEPLEAEPLEASE don't hesitate to respond. I need so much help.

LET IT GO MAN. Grunt didn't anything wrong. He didn't know it was a recast, and he destoryed the mold when he found out. What don't you people understand about that?

And Andrew, recasting someone else's armor isn't Ok, unless you get permission from them.
