Some good information here, Shala. The thread is old and a lot of the pics have been removed, but you may still be able to get some ideas.

I didn't do a diary here, but I think I put in some amounts of materials: 7kg (15lbs) clay over a foam head and pipe supports, 22.5kg (50lbs) ultracal to mold the montral, 5l (umm...160 fluid ounces!) liquid latex, and a few litres (100ish fluid ounces) fibreglass resin.
I also cast a set in cold cast foam and we will not go in to how pricey that is (possibly about as hard to get consistant cell structure as foam latex but I haven't yet tried foam latex in such big molds!)

Currently using new mixes of latex to cast the montral more easily than having to turn the molds at least twice a day. But that base cost in materials is still the same (it's at least $80 in latex for each set let alone counting hours of labour in each step of the process. But my molds have a lovely texture and the new latex mix I have worked on is almost sculptable! Super excited about how this will make tidying seams etc. :)

Now to update that thread with the few new photos :)
