This workshop will cover the creation and use of molds to make multiples of a fabricated or cast piece you want to duplicate. We will focus on the heat vulcanizing technique commonly called a “Powder Mold”. This technique eliminates the need to cut the mold open with a scalpel. Each participant will have the opportunity to make wax models from their new mold by use of a wax injector.
PLEASE NOTE: mold materials contain Latex. Those with allergies, please be aware.
A Materials Kit ($20 value) is included in your tuition and contains mold materials and wax for injection.
Bring the following items:
- Finished pieces that you have fabricated or cast to make a mold
(No bracelets or large pieces for this introductory course)
