06 Waste Molds Nº 2
I made the moulage molds of the hands. This is a photo of the moulage being melted in a stainless steel double-boiler. Do not melt moulage in aluminum containers. Click on any image to enlarge it.
The moulage has melted and it is stirred with a spatula.
In this photo, the moulage has been poured into the cottles.
Once the moulage has cooled, the block molds are cut with a mold knife and the oil-clay models are removed.
The oil-clay models, removed from the moulage molds.
The cottles are replaced, and banded with rubber bands.
The molds are now ready to be poured with carving wax. If the molds cannot be poured right away, place them in a plastic bag so they will not dry out.
