09 Plaster Production Molds Nº 218
After removing the coddles, I used the SurForm tool to bevel all the edges.
Next, I used a knife and a small hammer to open the third mold piece along the mold seam.
It came off easily. I beveled all the edges.
Next, I opened the first two mold pieces.
They opened easily.
I removed the carving wax pattern. It came out easily.
I finished beveling all the edges that needed to be beveled.
I used a pencil to mark the placement of the spare.
I used my paring knife to start cutting the spare at each end.
Then I cut the middle of the spare.
I repeated the same operation to carve the other half of the spare.
This is what the inside of the mold looks like.
I banded the mold and set it next to the furnace to dry. All the other molds are already dry.
