The plaster molds

Here we have the finished plaster negative molds.
The negative molds are created by brushing plaster onto the oil base clay sculpture and
laminating burlap with the plaster to achieve a thickness of about 3/4".
The molds are in two pieces to facilitate the removal of the clay and finished silicone.
A third mold piece is used (not shown) as an inner core,
this determines the thickness of the silicone before pouring.
