JD - yes, I quit vacuum hanging due to repeated blistering. Now, I have the intention to get back into it after a lengthy break, but I want to make sure that the constriction of the glans will be enough to prevent any blistering. Taping didn’t stop it, even when taped tightly. Maybe a wider, more flexible tape would have done the job, but part of what I liked about this setup was the easy on, easy off. Taping is anything but. I’m going to feel more comfortable with a constriction sleeve molded from my slightly plump, but not fully erect glans. It should fit like a glove and keep me safe.
BG - I think you already anticipated part of the trouble with making a single long mold. Even if you pour a very thin stream, that stuff is starting to set up by the time I’m done pouring my 5 inchers. I degas the cup I mix it in before pouring, pour as thin a stream as possible, and then degas it again while in the mold. I would also recommend only doing one your first couple of times. There are some things you’ll figure out during the process that make it easier each time. If you try to do too much at once, you’ll make a mess and may not come up with anything usable.
I bought my ecoflex (as well as some dragonskin, just to try different densities) from a shop up there in the DFW area - http://www.reynoldsam.com/pages.php?pID=36. I’m down the road about 250 miles South of you, so I just ordered it from their site and had it shipped. It’s not cheap, but at least you’re close. I’ll probably need to restock pretty soon.
If you head over that way, you should consider picking up some body molding stuff. Now that stuff is an art! I still haven’t gotten a really good full cast of my dong, yet, but good enough of the top 2/3 to make a personal constriction sleeve.
I also got a venturi vacuum attachment from harbor freight for my air compressor to speed up that vacuum draw. We’ll see how much that helps.
