Extend your skills as a sculptor as you learn how to create clay sculptures using silicone and plaster moulds.

Claire Tennant leads you through step-by-step processes, beginning with making an artwork in clay, then turning it into a mould to be cast in plaster. She shows you how to make a reusable silicone and plaster jacket mould of your clay artwork, cast a positive from the mould, and apply various professional finishing and patination techniques.

Discover the various types of silicones and how to choose the right mould-making technique for the job at hand. Claire covers the challenges involved in using the medium of plaster, as well as common casting problems and practical applications of mould-making techniques. Open to students of all levels of experience.
