Port Mold Making

Anybody made molds of their ports?  I want to make some whilst I have the head disassembled (for a future project).
 
What material did you use?
 
I cannot find any references to Australian supplied material.  Was looking at a 2-part RTV Silicone from Dalchem (their P42) but it is translucent whereas it needs colour to assist with viewing.

    The engine ended up going back to the builders for major surgery after I found a substantial issue so I got them to make the port mould.  Apparently the PinkySil worked a treat and they thought it was great stuff!
