The plug is what we call a model.

Its the model that you see in the photos. We make that model or plug and send that to the mold maker and they make the alluminum mold off of that model.

Plugs are made out of a lot of things. I use...

a high density foam that is easy to sand.
I also use Bondo car putty to fill gaps and a primer paint to get the finish.
Here is a link to a timelapse of me shaping the Vision plug.
