Rubber Molds 3 Ways: Block, Brush, and Blanket Molds

with Lauren Kalman
Virtual Three-Part Demonstration Workshop using the Zoom Platform
 
March 26 and April 02 &09 | Time: 1:00- 3:00p.m. ET 
 
This workshop explores 3 methods for creating rubber molds: block molds, brushed molds, and blanket molds. Rubber molds are an exciting way to replicate forms making it possible to produce multiples or transform an original object into a new material like resin, plaster, or wax for casting and electroforming. The three techniques covered will provide students with options for a variety of shapes and sizes of objects to mold. We will be using a silicone rubber for this workshop, but we will also discuss other molding material options.
 
The workshop will cover:
Preparing objects for molding
Choosing an appropriate molding method
Mixing material
Pouring or paint rubber
Building mother molds
Safe material handling


* This will be a fast-paced workshop. Some experience with mold making may be helpful, but is not necessary.
