09 Plaster Production Molds Nº 96
I removed the coddles, then turned the mold on its side and proceeded to scrap along the mold seams on each side. Click on any image to enlarge it.
I used a small hammer and my paring knife to split the seam along the bottom. It separated quite easily.
Then I did the same thing with the seam between the other two halves of the mold. Once again, the mold separated quite easily.
The carving wax lower leg stayed in the calf side of the mold. It came free with a very gentle push out from the socket end.
There is that little piece of oil-clay I put to meet the parting line. The leg might have stuck in the mold if I had not noticed that, and fixed it. Each cast made from this mold will have to have that removed.
