Cold Cast Sculpture
June 22, 2015 - June 26, 2015| Register: $595
The variety of techniques and media available to today’s sculptor makes the range of possibilities for mold making and casting an exciting adventure. This workshop will explore everything from the most traditional technique of relief casting with plaster to the more sophisticated process of building two-part rubber molds for works in the round.
With the flexible mold, we are able to realize complex forms that would not be possible with the rigid mold, and these new materials lend themselves to the further production of “multiples.” Multiples enable us to make variations on an original or in a repeated installation. Plaster is the most traditional and efficient way to instant gratification but we will also experiment with a range of non-traditional materials and add-mixes to create our own customized casting compound that can be finished in various patina effects.
