dear Mr. paquet,

I am a huge fan and admirer of your work
and was hoping you could answer a few of my questions.


Do you ever make molds of your super sculpey work;
and then re-work in another material like wax or clay?
If so; what type of molds are they?
Anything regarding the materials you use and process;
would be really helpful.


Thanks for your time

Mike, don't encourage them. It's bad enough they have the right to vote.

I work in SS and wax depending on the piece. Yes I will sometimes rough work out, mold it, then cast it in wax, but I also use wax from scratch.

I use a material called ELASTOSIL M 4444 as my rubber of choice. It is very reasonable in price and works perfectly on wax or SS without any barrier coating. I buy it through a California distributor you can find here- http://www.walcomaterials.com/main.html

I have been using them for years and have always had great service.

At some point soon I will try and find the time to post a decent tutorial on mold making.

Thank you so much for your reply and this thread...
it is amazing how different super sculpey is when cooked properly; it has been much easier to carve.

i have also recently purchased a heat gun, which has done wonders for me in seperating pieces/joints and working on things seperately.

i would really like to make molds to help save my progress (i have a tendancy to re-work good work ) and i am going to purchase the elastosil you suggested.

Thanks again,

sam

Baking for several hours would be sufficient for quite large pieces. You can bake as long as you want providing you keep an eye on it. At 225 degrees the piece will never really burn, but it will turn black eventually so I don't recommend you allow it to go that far.
