I was trying to figure out how much smaller I could go.....about an 3/4 inch from the edge of the original? as a rule of thumb?
Yes, 3/4" is good. 1/2" and 1/4" will also work for a small piece. The more molds you make, the more daring you will get!

About this you can try putting plasticine one that do not contain Sulpher to cover the pimples in your mold before casting...
Clarita is correct. You can do this method too, but will have to smear in the clay before each casting because it will pull out with the piece.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
