ARTS 546 Mold Making and Slip Casting

This course is a study of the history, technical processes and proper application of mold making and slip casting. A combination of lecture, demonstration and experiential methods will be used to develop three-dimensional problem solving, proper plaster use and casting slip formulation. Multi-part molds will be created from prototypes, cycles of production will be generated and the science behind creating and maintaining proper slip consistency will be taught to achieve consistent results.
