Fundamentals of Mold Making and Slipcasting

Posted On September 6, 2012 Comments Off on Fundamentals of Mold Making and Slipcasting

Molds are a simple way to create simple or complex forms that allow you to make multiple copies of a form with little effort. When you do this, the individual forms lose their preciousness, which allows you the freedom to creatively experiment. And as you build a library of forms, you’ll find even greater flexibility as you cut and reassemble shapes in any number of configurations. Guy Michael leads you step-by-step through the entire mold making and slip casting process. By the end of his demonstration, you’ll understand the principles of making both single and multi-part molds as well as how to make your own slip and successfully cast pieces.
