The goal of the two piece mold is to allow me to clean the wax out of the mold perfectly as well as dry the mold completely.
The wax sculpture before plaster The front half is dipped in the plaster. Oil is spread over the plaster bottom half and another layer is poured on. Then after setting the two halves are separated. The dark spots on the top half are babbit to allow for the nails to be pulled out even though they are not perfectly straight.
holes were drilled to allow the metal to flow into the mold. and i set a can in plaster to make a spout.
