The Sculpting, moulding and casting process has so many different parts that it’s difficult to convey without writing thousands of words! First, you measure out and build a sturdy armature (skeleton) from metal, then you sculpt on top of that in clay or wax. Clay can be incredibly heavy so he armature strength is crucial. Next, you make a mould using many layers of silicone rubber, shim (to split the mould into multiple parts) and a fibre glass casing. Once moulded, the original sculpture is destroyed; the mould is now the Sculptor’s most valuable asset… casts from it can be made multiple times - in resin, plaster or through the ‘lost wax’ process at a foundry to make a Bronze.
