Class 2204 – Intro to Rubber Mold Making

??????????

This is a great way to make 3-D elements in kilncast glass. Think of the sculptural possibilities! Our instructor for this class was on Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) faculty as Asst Professor of Glass, and represented the USA in the recent international Glass Challenge competition held at Sweden’s Glass Factory Museum.

In this short weekend class we will tackle the basics of making rubber molds for the production of parts that can be duplicated in wax. Students will be asked to bring a minimum of 3 small objects (not more than 1.5″ in any direction) to class for discussion and exploration of mold production. Undercuts, part lines, multipart mold-making, and casting of waxes for use in lost wax work will be discussed. Students will learn about a variety of materials available and how to decide what materials are best to use in different situations.
