Body Parts Cast in Glass

April 19, 2014

APRIL 19 & 26

Get introduced to glass casting by taking an alginate mold of your hand, foot, elbow or other easily accessible body part and cast it in glass! This workshop is perfect for beginners and seasoned casters alike. On the first day learn to use alginate, wax and plaster to make a mother mold in order to produce more than one positive of your chosen body part, then make the mold for the kiln. On day two learn how to steam out the wax, calculate the amount of glass needed to fill your mold and load the kiln. Clear casting billets, mold materials, tools and kiln firings are included in the price of the class. No prerequisites.
