The Precise Art of Moulding

Many people think that cast sculptures acquire their detail strictly from the clay model, but what they don’t see is the secondary process that creates the accuracy of the finished work. The Technique for plaster moulding is simple. To get into the detailed inner layers, you have to use something with a soft tip like a small brush that can fit into crevices. Once you’ve made a first layer that covers every detail in wet plaster, then a palette or dabbing medium can be used to increase the layer mass and make the mould more durable. Moulding can take a bit of time, but it is a crucial step in the formation of fine precision artworks and sculptures.
The Precise Art of Moulding
I'm a modern sculptor who circles around the possibility of creating contemporary beauty through fluid, smoothened curvatures of the human form. I have a craving for the elusive impact that abstract art can sometimes convey through its magnificent renderings of the human conditions. Once in a blue moon, I also tend to sleeptalk. | chuakylo@gmail.com
