I have a clay (plasticine) positive of a human figure standing 5' tall

  • Next step is making a rubber mold for the lost wax process and a bronze positive
  • May I use the rubber mold for slip after the wax positive is made, plaster is to fragile and not at all charming
  • Is Raku the answer for drying, if I can make a slip positive
  • Would someone discuss the basics here? Any pointers are welcomed, if they reference the project!
  • The actual mold has multiple pieces that will be joined to form a container into which the slip may be poured and later poured out when the piece reaches the desired thickness.
  • Suggestions on thickness and etc.
  • Ideas other than plaster or slip

  • @Catija Yes, five feet tall. Will be a complicated mold but, if memory serves me well, it will turn out fine. – Ace Aug 24 '17 at 5:01
