09 Plaster Production Molds Nº 147
I like to carve the spare after making the mold. I start by drawing the layout of the spare with a pencil, and a combination square/ruler.
First I carve the ends of the spare, which are two half circles at the ends of a cone shape, with one large half circle and one small half circle. I use my paring knife for all the carving. Plaster is very homogeneous and relatively easy to carve. I shave off a little bit at a time, so it is easy to do.
Next, I carve out the middle, between the two half circles that I have already carved. I carve from the middle, out to the pencil lines.
Finally, I bevel the top edge of the mold.
I repeat the above steps for the other half of the spare. Here is a snapshot of the finished spare.
