"Redefining the Art of Life: Part 2"
July 12-14, 2018
 

Here is your opportunity to learn essential industry standard silicone mold making and casting techniques. The class will be fast moving and each student will create their own silicone mold and support shell from an instructor supplied master. Full hands-on participation and some student teamwork interaction will be required. The intent is for each student to finish the class with an individual, two-part silicone mold, cast part from the mold and the knowledge to continue building skills. The discussion will cover various types and examples of RTV rubber, their purposes and limitations and multiple types of mold construction techniques.
