About the Course
This course is a hands on two-day intensive course on Silicone Mould Making, focusing on casting and mould making using silicone rubber moulds.
Silicone is a versatile material that enables you to make highly detailed moulds that are flexible and can be used to make many casts. During the course you will identify various rubber mould making techniques including:
Solid rubber moulds.
Skin moulds with plaster jackets.
Cavity moulds with plaster Jackets.
You will identify how to manipulate this fantastic mould making material through this variety of processes. You will also learn how to cast into silicone rubber moulds using plaster, wax, and cement.
Open to all levels including beginners.
It would be ideal for participants who have a small sculpture to cast, but it is not necessary as we will also have objects here for you to cast.
It is essential to wear old clothes and strong footwear.
