About the Sculpture: Plaster & Mold-Making Studio
In the plaster and mold-making studio, students have access to reusable retaining wall pieces (cottle boards) for constructing mold boxes, mixing containers, stir sticks, mold releases, and limited consumable materials such as plaster. Most materials must be purchased by students unless enrolled in a casting class.
Expert advice for mold making and body casting is available to help you with your project (ask for Eric).
A small vac-u-forming machine is available for molding plastic and food-safe materials.
For students interested in modeling from the figure, a set of sculpture easels and an actual skeleton are available.
Limited storage for in-progress molds is available.
