Mould Finally Made

Finally finished the long awaited mould! Silicone eventually came back into the workshop and I was able to add the last two layers and complete my first two part mould! The first image on the left is the thicker silicone layer and the second is the plaster jacket used to hold the mould firm when making a cast. Next step is to choose the material I want to cast the long forgotten figurine in. I’m considering using a clear resin, so the figurine will look like solid clear plastic. I’m also thinking about using a coloured resin which I used way back in first year- the house below. The detail of the figurine I hope will be captured beautifully. I’ve also just start to think about casting the figurine in plaster to encourage the viewer to think about the fragility of our objects? All ideas to play with next week!
