As mentioned in a previous post, I am planning on casting ink rollers for 2 presses.
The “Gummy Bear” rollers sound interesting and I might give them a try…but…
Could anyone advise me as to what 2 part rubber product to buy that would work well for casting them…?

Generally composition (gummi bear) rollers are cast, whereas rubber rollers may be cast, but are generally ground to dimension. The mold requirements would likely be different if casting rubber vs composition.
If you are willing to cast your own rollers, I’d recommend working with composition. If that works and you’re good at it, then you can always make new rollers for yourself.
