silicon rubbers and urethane casts
teacher: Doris Maninger
To make effective and long lasting moulds for the reproduction of objects in plastic, resin, ceramic, concrete and wax is the goal of this course. Experiments and trials will lead to a profound knowledge about the characteristics and qualities of the different materials and the myriad of possible application for jewellery and sculpture.
In three days we will explore the various aspects of moulding and casting, from the preparation of the model, the choice of the right moulding material, the options for release to the casting itself and its numerous variations.
