Mold Making for Doll 3

Over the past few weeks I've been researching plaster mold making and not finding the information I needed so I ordered " The Essential Guide To Mold Making and Slip Casting" by Andrew Martin. Spent some time reading and trying to absorb all the information. The book was helpful and I think I'm ready to tackle a new set of molds. My next hurdle was finding the right plaster. No 1 Pottery Plaster is the best choice according the Andrew. Found it at Dick Blick. While waiting for the plaster to arrive I worked on removing undercuts from 19 parts. This is very important step. Sanding, sanding, sanding...
Each part has been sanded and parting lines have been determined. Now I'm ready to cast a new set of molds!

The White Butterfly

You can chase a butterfly and never catch it. But if you sit quietly it will come to you.
