I have just recently tried pressing a few small shapes as Kent suggests. It is very effective.

My only caution is again about matching the contour of the badge. The badge and fender rarely match which is the cause for the three studs pulling off the back of the badge. I have soldered many studs back on. The factory additionally uses double back tape to help with this problem. If you can match contours, it makes your life much easier.

Evaluate the fit of the badge before casting a mold. Perhaps a minor adjustment of the surface could be made with a bit of plastic filler before making the mold.
