Yesterday, I taught a Mold-Making and Casting workshop at the National Taiwan University of the Arts (NTUA) in Banciao City, Taipei. I compiled my notes to give to the students as reference and posted them here for interested parties, or for those students who didn't receive a copy yesterday. It was a good day - thank you to all the students who attended, to the graduate students who were so helpful, and to Jia-Haur Liang ( ) for being such a gracious host!
For those of you interested in casting from body parts, here is the stuff you need:
This company is based in Pennsylvainia, USA. I'm not sure about shipping or a supplier in Asia - you will need to research it.
For those of you wondering about how to make 3 or more part molds or large molds, here are some pictures of a large mold that I made. It has a hole in the top for pouring, and one in the bottom for draining(There is a hole in the board underneath). It takes an entire large bucket of slip, like the one you see under the mold to fill it for casting!!! And, it takes 4 extra-large clamps to hold it together while it is being cast. I don't have any images of actually making the mold, but if you would like some ideas/instruction, I'd be glad to help - just e-mail me!
