Mold Making

Complacent with first layer of silicone

Complacent with first layer of silicone

Today I finally got to begin the mold for the new little piece.  Seeing the first thin layer of silicone brushed on a sculpture is usually very exciting.  It unifies forms and smooths transitions in a very pleasing way.  I think my goal is to make a sculpture that looks that good before the rubber is brushed on. This particular silicone has more translucency than the products I typically use and I'm a little disappointed the effect isn't stronger.
