Learn the fundamental principles of mould-making using silicone rubber Pinkysil and polyurethane casting. Sam Valenz encourages you to bring a selection of your own found or collected objects (around 200 to 350 mm in width or depth), from which you will learn to make a silicone rubber mould. You will then cast into plaster, wax or polyurethane or simply model out of clay. Sam teaches you how to assemble these objects to make dynamic sculptural forms and introduces a range of finishing techniques with plaster and coloured urethane. He gives you the confidence to take home new skills and knowledge about silicone rubber mould-making that can also be used for wax and bronze casting in the Term Two Short Course. This course is suitable for beginners and advanced students as well as for artists wanting to expand their sculpture skill-set.
