It Begins

I started the mold making process today. This is the first coat of latex rubber. It takes about 20 coats plus a cellulose thickener. Depending on the temperature I can usually do two coats a day. Then I’ll need to make a cradle to hold the empty rubber mold in place when I use it to make a casting. The cradle for this one is going to be tricky. I’ve used plaster in the past, but this one might have to be part foam. I’ve ten days to figure it out.
