James Shoop: Molding and Casting Workshop

"Alaethea"  James Shoop


  • You will supply your own small clay sculpture, and be guided through the process of capturing the shape and details of the sculpture with a rubber mold. 
  • Next, you will be instructed on creating a plaster mother mold on the outside of the cured rubber.
  • After the mold is complete we will make plaster casts of the original sculpture.
  • Other types of mold making and casting techniques will also be discussed.
