I wonder if it's better to rotate the arms 90 degrees counter clockwise so the key is going to be the pour spout and maybe add an air vent at the end of the arm near the wrist, adding the vents where i drew will be a bit annoying to cleanup and add the fabric pattern, and i'm trying to add the seam line in the area less visible like the underside of the arm.
That's great that the head came out good. That is a very good idea as the key would provide a large pour area and also you wouldn't have to clear off the excess if you do that. Looks like things are working better for you, please keep us updated.

Will do thanks for the feedback, i just got a degass chamber and it's the wrong region(has 110 V instead of 220V and US plug instead of EU), think i should retun it and get a pressure pot. If u could have only one what would u choose a degass chamber or a pressure pot? From what i've seen degass chamber is better at silicone and pressure pot more for resin, with silicone i used the bombs away method and only see a few tiny bubles on the overall mold, the sillicone i use is platinum based and i says it doesn't require vacuum.

Watched a couple of videos explaining this topic, in the Macfarlane Toys video 2 they use a pressure pot for the sillicone and for the resin, the rest of the videos they prefer to use degass on silicone and pressure on resin, if the silicone has bubbles after it's harden and is used in a pressure pot for resin casting those bubbles will get smaller and will create spots on the resin cast.
