Step 1: FROM THE MODEL TO THE FINAL SCULPTURE
The fresh clay model is divided in 2 parts with a clay border all around the sculpture.
One part is coat with liquid plaster. We let it dry, take off the clay border and soap all this first part.
All is dry ! The second part of the sculpture is coated with plaster. Let's dry again ...
Times to clean the plaster mold now ! Take off the clay of the sculpture, destroying the clay model.
Open up the mold, clean, clean, clean ...
All is clean, join the 2 parts of the mold and spray oil inside.
OK !!! Time to cast ...
Prepare your concrete and cast it !
1 week later, you can take off the final sculpture breaking the paster mold... with softness. OF COURSE !
Here we go !
