Upper Torso Mold Part 1
This is the build-up around the upper torso. It is made with cereal box cardboard and oil-clay. The first half of the mold will be made over this. The spare is at the waist. The clay arm socket pieces and the clay spare will stay in the first half of the mold. The clay build-up around the neck will be removed after the first half of the mold is poured.
This is what the back of the build-up looks like. The clay and wax pellets serve to hold the cardboard in place, and to seal around the torso so plaster won't leak through the space between the torso and the cardboard.
This is what the cardboard part of the build-up looks like.
This is the cardboard build-up for the lower torso. I added pieces to fit inside the sockets.
