Glass tech, open faced moulds, week 10

A practical demonstration on making an open-faced mould.

Open face moulds suit models that have a wider base than the top.

Make your object in clay

surround with (baffels?) fix with g clamps and seal edges with clay.

Mix your plaster.

Plaster should achieve this consistency.

Flick plaster in to begin with (some techniques do differ)

Pour in plaster carefully preferably in a corner not on the clay (causes bubbles).

watch out for leaking.
Jiggle table ot tap baffles...causes bubbles to rise.
