i was just wondering what material/materials, would work to fashion a mold with flowing curves and irregular patterns on it.  i was looking for somthing that would hold up to the resin and could be formed with common tools like belt sander, rasps, ect and not cost a fortune.  i am looking to form a mold to replace my door pockets on my door panels on my 01 accord coupe for a three way front stage component set.

Find you a hobby shop get Green Floral foam it can be rough cut easly with an electric knife and then sanded

with 120 grit to shape it (green foam its used to make flower arangments) Its farily cheap

thanks, thats a good idea, do you know if the resin will mess up the foam?  if so, what do i cover the foam with to prevent this?

You will want to foil it or something that I have used last couple time is sarin-wrap pull it tight to were it forms

to mold without any wrinkles in it. The last time I tried it pulled right out. Left a glass smooth finish on the inside NOTE: Acetone will dissolve the foam to a sticky nasty mess

I did alot of  fiberglass fabrications and i used different kinds of materials like (foam - mdf - wood - fiber putty - strong paper - skin steel - aluminum ) to made moulds and have the best shape from the first time .

but you should know that there is no limits for materials or means that you can use to fabricate the fiberglass , I deal with fiber as a challenge , and i advice all do the same .
