Advanced Mouldmaking and Casting

Nick Brooks
The scope and potential of mouldmaking and casting is fascinating, and makes it one of the most exciting processes available to today's craftsmen. Its opportunities have been developed and expanded further by a range of new methods and materials only recently made available to the domestic market. Topics include: jesmonite mould making and casting; bioresin casting; life moulding silicone from the body; large-scale clay press moulding; embedding in clear resin; clay slip casting; plas-ti-shim moulding, and finally finishing. Aimed equally at the student with little pre-existing knowledge and the professional wishing to further their skill base, this book provides an invaluable learning and reference tool for the studio or workshop of any artist, model maker or designer.
