09 Plaster Production Molds Nº 44
I apply the soap parting agent. I always pour a small amount into a new container, and I only dip the brush in that solution. That way, the main solution of soap parting agent does not get polluted. I apply the soap liberally. Then I dry the brush off on a towel, and use it to get excess parting agent off, as well as removing any bubbles. I let the parting agent dry thoroughly. I only apply one layer because the oil-clay build-up and the carving wax foot do not absorb any of the solution. Click on any image to enlarge it.
I attach the coddles in place with clamps. Then I press some oil-clay coils around the bottom of the coddles to secure them to the molding table. Otherwise, the molding table vibrator will cause the coddles to move when I am trying to pour the plaster.
