plaster and or cemeny moulds 9024

Post by tony Grimwoo » Thu, 14 Oct 1999 04:00:00


Hi Chrissie from New Zealand here I've just found this group today.
My interest is in plaster moulds and casting. There doesn't appear to be
a great supply of molds or variety down here in this part of the world.
I'm trying to source new and interesting moulds that are of a
classic/Romantic design. I'm currently working with mermaid moulds and
mirrors.
I would appreciate any info/contacts for moulds.
Regards, Chrissie.

I need to find a strong plaster.  One that can be made into bowls and not be brittle.
I know that the newer plasters, like "Faster Plaster" are quite brittle...but
how about the older types that take longer to harden?  How strong are they?
Does anyone have any tips as to how to make the plaster stronger-add something
to the wet plaster? use mesh in between pourings?

Thanks,
Peggy

I use hydrocal instead of plaster, its available from most lumber
yards or dental supply comp. There is also an additive, the name
escapes now but I've seen it in the*** Blick art supply catalog. You
can also try dipping the casting in shelac. This penetrates  the
plaster sealing and strengthing it.
