09 Plaster Production Molds Nº 151
I made a cardboard template for the build-up today. First of all, I centered the carving wax leg on the cut-out cereal-box cardboard, making sure that I had at least 1.50 inches all around the leg. Click on any image to enlarge it.
I used the little plastic card as a square, and a mechanical pencil to draw a dotted line around the outside of the leg.
I drew a solid cut line about 1/8th of an inch outside the dotted line. I drew a center line through the length of the leg. I measured the 1.50 inch lines all around the outside of the leg.
The template fits over the carving leg pattern with a 1/8th inch space all around. I will use this template to cut out the oil-clay build-up.
