Upper Torso Mold Part 4
Here, the arm socket is shown, just poured. The wax torso is still inside the mold. I did not forget to apply the parting agent before pouring the plaster. Remember, plaster sticks to plaster, so a suitable parting agent is needed when pouring plaster into plaster.
This is another view of the mold, showing the spare. Note that all the edges of the mold have been beveled. This looks good, keeps sharp edges from chipping, and is easier on the hands when working with the molds.
It really helps to have a vibrator turned on when pouring such small pieces. Here are the arm socket pieces.
