corking molds

I got this as a private message and I don't yet have time to find the thread. Perhaps someone can do the simple search. It seems to me it was this:

Finally, I know sorry this is a lot, I was curious if there was any info on mold blowing? Again have looked numerous times can’t seem to find anything. Thanks so much!

It helps to heat up the metal mold a little first, before adding the linseed. It helps with getting an even layer, let it drip upside down till it cools and gets real tacky, then apply the cork dust. And repeat 3 times.

Forget the linseed oil. Use Renite. Ed switched to that.

I corked a 12 wides 32 cylinder mold with linseed oil. Dropped a bubble into it the first time and as I pulled the bubble out, the linseed oil vapors combusted and shot the bubble and pipe up about a foot in a giant cannon blast. Scared the crap out of me.
