yesterday i sculpted four leaves to use as models for making molds. this photo shows the first step in using liquid latex for mold making. there is just one coat here, but i will put on two or three more and then make a 'jacket' of plaster for each one, so that there is a firm base to push the clay into. i like using this latex because it is very flexible and can be peeled off the molded clay with no damage to the unbaked clay model.
it may take a little longer to make these molds, but i find them more useful than other types.
