New Hip Joint Mold
Today I made a moulage mold of the cue ball that I had found at the Thrift store. This is the oil-clay build-up, and a strip of cereal box cardboard for the mold box.
The oil-clay spare is tapered so I can remove the casting. The cardboard strip for the mold box is fastened with masking tape.
I placed three oil-clay registration keys around the edge of the clay build-up of the first half of the mold.
After melting and pouring the first half of the moulage mold, then letting it set up in the refrigerator, I flipped the mold over and removed the oil-clay build-up, so I could melt and pour the second half of the moulage mold.
The finished mold, ready to pour.
