Fascinating World of Mold-Making and Casting
Fascinating World of Mold-Making and Casting
Have you ever wondered how sculptors and modelers make a limited production of their work?  It is an involved process that can be simplified into the following major steps:
1. Create the original sculpture.
2. Make a mold of the original sculpture.
3. Cast parts using the mold.
4. Clean up and assemble the parts.
5. (Optional) Prepare for painting, and paint.
'The Master'
No, I am not talking about one who dishes out instructions :lol:, rather, the original sculpture that the sculptor/modeler makes.  As an example, the deviation below is an original sculpture of Urd, Goddess of the Past in the Ah! My Goddess manga.  This example will be used to illustrate the process of making mold and casting.
  The different colors of epoxy clay are used to enhance visualization.
If the sculptor/modeler intends to make duplicates of the master, then the master must be scu

Hey it's 2018! This is my yearly update! 

This year I'm definitely back and I'm definitely still sculpting. I'm now living in Hong Kong (and will be for the next 2 years). I have been kind of moving around for the past 2 years but now that I am more "settled" I have decided to go back to sculpting. I feel more relaxed and thus am more able to sculpt. I have already started uploading some stuff, hope you guys don't mind it!

My style has changed due to the fact I'm no longer living in Australia, and I don't have the space for all my old stuff. In the past I was using polymer clay (which needs baking) but these days I've been using more air dry clay, since I just don't have an oven, haha.

I am now really short on space so I will no longer be making random knick-knacks.. most things I will make will be gifts.

Hi! My name is Ying and I joined this site maybe over a decade ago. I started sculpting around 6 years ago and so this account was born.

Currently I don't find myself having any time to sculpt, so this account exists as an archive of what I sculpted throughout my highschool years.

One day I hope to return to sculpting, and I will let you know when that happens. :)

I can often be contacted on Subeta.
