Overview

About this Course

Learn how to make perfect copies of your original molds with traditional technique. Hollow copies. Suitable for Bronzes (lost wax technique)

This course allows you to learn how to make three-dimensional pieces of resin and fiberglass from an original piece: it can be a piece of your creation or simply an object that you love.

To achieve this, we will carry out the entire process step by step: we will create a mold made of silicone rubber with resin shell with glass fiber and we will make the hollow "emptying" also of resin with fiberglass (the final result).

Once you make a silicon rubber mold, you can make numerous pieces from these: just repeat the process of "emptying" as many times as you want, all will be identical to the original object.

You can create replicas of your own modeling in plasticine, mud, epoxy, ceramics etc or replicate other pieces of rigid material.

This technique is THE BASIS OF:

  • Traditional sculpture to create more than one piece from the original modeling. The final piece can be resin and fiberglass (as in this video), filled resin without fiberglass, plaster or cement, any other material
  • The technique of lost wax in bronze. From this same mold can be made waxes that in the foundry are used to create the final bronzes - soon we will be uploading a video of how to make a bronze work
  • In the ART TOYS industry to create identical models that you can then customize, modify and intervene

Know the most indicated and professional materials and the creative process step by step.

Make your own piece thanks to simple and clear instructions.

IT IS THE IDEAL COMPLEMENT OF THE MODELING COURSE "LEARN THE SECRETS OF SCULPTURE AND PROFESSIONAL MODELING"
