If you have made figures using resin parts griffin moulds in the U.K. can cast them using a cold cure mould process followed by a low temp silicone mould.
I have regularly used this method

Thank you a lot for your support guys!  :) :) :) I'll do my best!  ;)

Oh my! That's interesting and helpful! I'll give it a thought but I suspect I kind of made my mind about sculpting the things anew (I decided this back in early January)...as a perfectionistic person I now see so many mistakes in the original miniatures I made...It's good to know though. Thanks!! :)

P.S: besides there are some poses I made that can't be casted and I didn't count with the shrinkage that casting produces so some of the figures ended up bein very very narrow when casted twice...so I suppose I should make them again anyway in order to correct these issues  :)

Just read this whole thread and can see that this has been a long learning process for you but you seem to have learned alot.I hope you don't give up on these as I think it will be great for someone to do tribe specific,especially Crows and Pawnees.Count me in as a customer when you start selling these.Maybe in a couple years you will be doing something like this. :o :-* ;D :D
