Moldin Wolvy Quick Tutorial by Uratz-Studios Moldin Wolvy Quick Tutorial by Uratz-Studios
OK Here's a Quick Tutorial. It was late spending about 5 hours on side A to build up walls and stuff and do the plaster dental stone mold. Up to 2:20am to finally finish Side A.

Next day was easy spent about 1 hour + to make side B. Then the real adventures begin. De-molding is a like a delicate surgery especially with Hard clay. I had trouble opening it then I figured out a way (took the night off for this- No Rushing despite deadlines) to Use Hot Water to fill in the gaps after cracking the edges a little bit to find the separation line. Slowly filling and chiseling with flat chisels and separating both sides until it was effortless.

I had a rib muscle injury the other day riding on my scooter which end up being a good thing. Normally I would use my manly Hulk Power Muscles to pry these 2 open which would funking destroyed it. Luckily I compensated power with smarts and gently pry the 2 halves apart using the hot water method.

This is a good technique for all plaster molds. If you can't separate the 2 halves mold with a gentle handshake then don't do it.

Anyway Separating the head and melted the face gave me another Pet project idea: A demon Wolvy or Batty.

Now on to casting in latex... Urrrghhh!

Its dental stone. Another type of plaster in China. Its good that its yellow to differentiate from other brands and types of plaster materials. This is very fine powder.

I would have died trying to lift that thing. O_o I already have trouble lifting only face molds.

I love seeing your work in progress and these quick tutorials. :> Always so inspiring!

You forgot so Energy draining. I should've done this 10 years earlier! LOL

haha true. I am so exhausted even after a smaller mold, because you have to pay attention to so many things and stay concentrated all the time... or else you forget the release agent... like I do all the time. >.<

Yeah. You really have to take the time to make it. Can't rush since u spent 100's or hours on the sculpt only to mess up. Its a technical skill that requires the most mental and physical energy. I recommend people make it to really know what it feels like.

That is true.
Luckyly I realized it before I put the gypsum on it so I just lost a batch of gypsum and not the sculpt. I'm much more careful now.
But despite it being so hard I still love it. :>

LOL. poor wolvy. This head is too small though I will make a bigger version. I may just take a quick mold of this to make a resin mask for keepsake.

Cool, just wondering. I'm don't know much about how latex supports it's self and stuff like that, so I asked. Good to know it'll support, i always thought it would be too floppy (if that's the right word) I've gotta start playing around with it and just learn. ;D

you can add 4 way stretch fiber while casting it in layers, brushing it into the mold.

Wait till I get some good castings. Latex is tricky. Should've done a silicone mold for this.
