Open access workshop using Vinamould, it works a bit like silicone. Here I have taken a mould of a fork which I plan to use to create multiple wax forks that can be bent and twisted. It fits in with my 3D design brief in which I plan to use mundane objects that I will manipulate using Rhino. It will be printed out using a makerbot and finished by hand. I’m currently developing my ideas for the project to be presented this Friday.

Finished mould making. Used soft soap on the second half of the mould, but not the first so struggled to get the doll out from the first half. Whoops. When making the mould I had no leaks so I think this will be a pretty good mould. It’s drying this week so it will be ready for slip casting next week. It’s quite a slow process because of the drying time for a plaster mould.

Mould making workshop. I chose to bring in a child’s toy. I chose it because I thought the shape would be a challenge, her pig tails and ears are not lined up so it can make creating the mould hard. Previously I have cast found objects and artefacts of my own, but nothing as intricate as this. Half the mould is setting in the plaster room, next session it will be finished.
