The following is a low tech, backyard casting sequence from a small sculpture studio nestled in isolated, bush clad hills
of New Zealands Northland.
The quality of a wax casting is purely a personal criteria. Here particular attention was focused on the master before the rubber mold was made. Any unwanted blemish on the master would be also on the subsequent wax castings and require unnecessary time in the cleaning up before plaster molding. Or if not dealt to in the wax stage then eventually in the cast glass.
Critical attention applying this pre-coat of molding plaster is crucial to eliminating air bubbles on the surface of the sticky wax.
bubbles caught here will be on the subsequent cast glass and require tools and time to remove
