Cool design! I wonder if you could also use a coated paper food takeout container to make the mold.

I'm pretty sure that you can make the mold without the styrene sheet.
The pentagon shape makes very stable structure for dodecahedron.
Make sure to use water resistive paper. (I will try with a takeout container. ^^)
