Single-Piece Open Face Molds - full-day

Designed for beginners, in this mold-making class we will create a single-piece open face mold with plaster.  These are also called drop molds because the object "drops" out after it releases from the mold.  Starts with discussion of what kinds of objects are good for drop molds.  Create our own small to medium sized objects of which to make a mold.  Then learn the process of making a plaster mold of them, including using cottle boards and mixing and pouring plaster.  These molds can be used with press-molded moist clay or slip-cast clay.  Plaster and clay for molds is included in lab fee.
