Casting Begins

Casting is one of the processes that I've been looking forward to the most. Int he past, I have done some plaster casting with latex rubber and plaster molds, but nothing on this small of a scale. Larry Larson did a great demo of the mold making process this week.

For this step, I made a silicone mold of a piece baked Sculpy. Once cured, I pored in the casting medium--a two part urethane plastic and waited. Now all that's left is REPEAT! 

For the retaining wall, I used cut pieces of flexible baseboard material. To seal it, I hot glued the material to a piece of glass.

The first cast!

And so it begins...
