masters to molds...

Once you have the master patterns, the next step is to make some molds.
This is a room temp. mold material, so the molds can be made of the wax.

This shows the first step in the molding process. Establishing the parting line. For this two piece mold I start by making a quarter inch thick base with clay. Then add the wax pattern and the sprues.

At this point I'm ready to pour the silicon. In the top photo you can see the clay on the bottom of this mold after the silicon is poured and cured. We're half way there......
