The Essential Guide to
Mold Making & Slip Casting

Andrew Martin

Mold-making is an important skill to learn because it will enable you to produce identical multiples of any object, such as matched dinnerware. Plaster molds let you create one-of-a-kind forms that can't be achieved by any other process. Using a simple yet unique template system, you'll be able to create a clay prototype of any object you want to produce.

This book explains how to use that prototype to make one or multiple piece molds. Finally, you'll learn how to pour casting slip into your mold to shape the final object. In addition, profiles of masters in the field present real-world creative insight and reflections on the craft.
