The Power of ComposiMold to Clone Anakin Skywalker

In this twisted and completely made up turn of events, Anakin Skywalker is being cloned to make the next Clone Army.  This video demonstrates how the new clone army is to be made using ComposiMold Reusable Mold Making material and a urethane resin.

The process begins by dipping the Jedi master shape into a Bubble Buster solution. This Bubble Buster can also be sprayed. The Bubble Buster reduces surface tension so the bubbles do not stay attached to the surface of the Jedi Master.

He is then placed carefully into the cloning box, also known as the mold box, or in this case a plastic cup.
The Cloning solution, ComposiMold, is first melted with electromagnetic radiation using a specialized heating system called a microwave. The melted ComposiMold is poured over the Jedi Master. A toothpick or paperclip can be used to pull bubbles away from any areas where bubbles may stay such as in undercuts or sharp corners.

When Anakin is completely covered, the mold cools to solidify. This cooling took approximately 1 hour at room temperature. The Jedi Master is removed from the ComposiMold mold. To help make the part easier to remove, a slice was cut along the back. The process was started with scissors, but a scalpel ended up being a little easier.

Each action figure must be made to look like the first to create the new army is to be constructed.
Because we are using a very fast curing urethane resin in this cloning process, the mold must remain as cold as possible so as to not melt the ComposiMold. We will place the mold in the freezer prior to pouring in the urethane to reduce the temperature of the mold.

The sides of the mold are taped shut again to keep the mold together and the urethane in.
Spray the mold with mold release and let the mold release completely dry before pouring in the urethane resin.
After the ComposiMold mold has been in the freezer for about 30 minutes, pour the urethane resin into the mold. Place the mold back in the freezer while the urethane cures. This will slow the curing time slightly, but not much. The entire process takes approximately 10 to 20 minutes depending on the urethane used.
Anakin has now been cloned! But does the new clone also have the power to control the force or just Anakins good looks?
Thank you and may the force be with you!
