Mind you I could be wrong...
That's exactly what I understand it to be also.

When widening a part, taking a splash mould gives you something to mould against once the item has been split, enabling you to keep the shape and contours

Splash mould is a word used for a "quick mould" to capture a shape. Usually not that thick, just thick enough to keep the shape etc.

Just be careful with the stuff and ideally wear eye protection as it's evil if you get it in your eyes, can safely say it burns like you won't believe and scares the bejeesus out of you as you just know it's curing and will cure quicker with body heat...

I dread to think how you know that

My ex flatmate in Lanzarote was a supply teacher over there, and during the summer the supply teachers were employed to paint the school.

She got a drip of gloss on her eyeball and decided white spirit would do the trick.....

How she did not go blind I don't know
