Default Any tips

I'm trying to cast the legs for my Tripod model and so far it's gone well.





The main leg mold is basically a long tube of RTV and I'm having problems getting it full. I can get it right down the bottom but it seems to go wrong in the middle.:angry:angry



I've been tapping the plastic tube the RTV mold is in to encourage air to the top still no luck..

Pics of your RTV mold would be helpful I think. It looks like there's insufficient venting to let the air escape other than where you're pouring but it's guesswork without seeing the molds.
