In this class students will be lead by a professional prop maker in the art of mold making to replicate objects or patterns in other materials by means of two part rubber molds. The techniques and task performed will demonstrate how to take an existing small objects, and how to create a mold to then duplicate the piece in other materials such as rubber, wax, silicon or resin. This class is designed to show the proper techniques necessary to make molds which will allow duplicates to be cast as is done in the movie industry for making props. These same techniques are utilized as the first step in getting a object replicated in metal in a industrial process called lost wax casting!
Note: this class involves the mixing of reactive chemicals, and allergic reactions are a possibility with contact. All students will be required to wear eye protection and vinyl gloves in a well ventilated area during class.
