Class Info pdf: Ins & Outs of Model & Mold Making for Kilnformed Glass
During this workshop students will concentrate on model making skills and mold making. For the model making we will work in clay and wax although the main focus will be wax. Students will make several models for different types of molds. The mold making portion of the workshop will cover reproduction molds and casting molds. The reproduction molds will cover latex, silicon, RTV rubber and plaster. The casting molds will cover open face, press, closed and multi-part. No glass will be cast in this workshop but students will take home the models, reproduction molds and casting molds that they make in the workshop. It is recommended that students bring small objects that they want to make reproduction molds of and also have ideas for pieces they want to make models of.
