What are your molds/bases made out of? If its like 1/8" Luann plywood, they will almost always curl up on you. When i build stuff out of fiberglass, I always have some sort of wood base. Then i stretch the fiberglass or mold material over it and apply the resin. When the material is stretched, it wants to curl the wood as you stated. What i do is screw my mold to a 2x4 so it will not curl or bend, then apply the resin. It will cure it to its flattened state (uncurled). Then unsrew the 2x4. Make sense?
