If you're going to reproduce in resin, you don't want a plaster mold. You need either a polyurethane or silicone mold. I suggest (and always will) my suppliers for ideas. either smooth-on.com or polytek.com

You will definitely need to seal the model and then use a separator. They make both sealers and spray on or brush on separator for resins. Check out smooth-on.com and spend some time viewing their videos. They cover just about every way to use their products.
