Get Going With Mold Making

Mold making is something that may sound bland and boring to a beginner. But once you get down to actually doing it, making a negative image of a model with your own hands can be incredibly exciting.

You can choose anything to begin with – be it a small figurine you especially like, a spare handle or even something ordinary lying around in the house. Indeed, it is possible to make a mold of just about anything that catches your fancy, your own body included!

If you are wondering about how to make a mold, there are varying techniques and you can use diverse products as well. In fact, a simple material like clay is the best mold making material for a novice. All you have to do is shape the malleable clay to form a covering over the model. Once it dries, remove it gently and you can see the silhouette of the model captured on the underside, complete with all the curves, folds, nooks and indentations.

Apart from this, wax, plaster bandages, alginate, moulage, polyurethane resin, latex rubber, silicone rubber and many other materials can be used to make a mold. You will need other products and accessories too - like sealer, release agent, vacuum chamber, mixer, brush, spatula, etc. – depending on your choice of technique and materials. All these can be easily sourced from EnvironMolds.

Again, a mold is not always ready in one go. At times, you may need to make two part molds or even multi-part molds for more complex shaped models.

All this may sound pretty complicated, but slowly you will find yourself able to make keys, spues and more very easily. And the satisfaction of using your mold to create a spitting replica in the form of a cast is simply incomparable!
