Moldmaking Like a PRO... DIY iPhone and GoPro Cases Part 2 by Lonnie Sexton
This project has two parts for the same purpose. I needed standard camera stand mount cases for my iPhone and GoPro cameras. Not that I don’t like the stock GoPro case, but I just needed a simple easy access case to use in the shop that connects to a 1/4-20 Stand. Below are the steps to create a custom case using Amazing Crafting Products.
This is part two of a two part post – iPhone is featured in part one.
Create Primary Object – Custom iPhone & GoPro camera mount cases
Mold the Primary
I used Cell Foam to create the prototype version. Parts of this project can also be found in part one. It’s easy to cut, shape and glue. Cell foam is porous and flimsy, but works for quick parts. However, there is a downfall. Unless you go through a coat and sanding process, the finished product will be rough on the edges where the cell foam is porous.

Using foam safe glue, assemble the parts for a custom fit.
Prepare the part for a 2-part mold using modeling clay.
Using hot glue and poster board, create a mold box around the part.
