When

Tuesday 20 April from 6pm to 7pm

Participants will be introduced to skills, techniques and tools required to create a one-piece latex flexible mold with a one-piece plaster mother mold. These skills will set you up to start your own mold-making project often needed in sculpture, props, puppetry or prosthetics for the creation of multiples or to translate your form into another material. No experience is required

Artist-2-Artist participants will be shown how to use cheap and biodegradable latex rubber instead of the very expensive silicon for their flexible mould.

The tools and equipment Kassandra will use include

1 melamine board large enough to fit the sculpture on with 5cm spare all around the outside

2 one inch flat brushes

1litre latex

2 different coloured packets of dishcloths

1 can spray cooking oil

1 medium sized round plastic container

1 bucket

1 bag clay/ plasticine

1 clay knife/ cutting wire

Kassandra will deliver her Artist-2-Artist session via an on-demand video, a Zoom Q&A and a Resource List.

The video will be available 13th - 27th April 2021. It will cover mold-making principles, preparation for molding, latex application, clay wall building and plaster mixing for the mother mold. Instructions will be given in the use of all tools and materials.

A 1 hour Zoom Q&A will follow on 20 April @ 6 - 7pm.Mold making is a massive field, sometimes a different approach is more appropriate for the materials, scale or performance requirements of the job. Talk to Kassandra about what you’re working on or project you have in mind, bring photos, ask questions about her professional history or about the arts industry from her perspective.

All participants will receive a Resource List including step-by-step notes for the demonstration will be supplied as well as a list of suppliers for tools and materials.
