From clay to mold to cast

We’ve been working on a little model. Here’s a little rundown of how it’s made:

We create a sculpture out of clay, from which we make a two part silicone mold.

The silicone allows for casting of more complex shapes without damaging the mold.

Once cast, the sculpture is painted with model paint. Pretty, isn’t it?
