It is easy to mold and reproduce all sorts of objects. The choice of the molding product depends on the shape and consistency of the subject, casting material and the number of copies desired.Measure out 1 part blue component (resin) to one part white component (hardener). Mix quickly (30 seconds) by rolling the mixture as a rod. The mixture should have a light blue uniform colour. Make a ball and crush the object laid flat by covering it with a layer of 3 to 4mm thick. For larger objects make a shell with the plaster strips.Working time: 3-4 minutes; setting time: about 5 minutes. To have more time for application, cool the mixture a few minutes in the refrigerator. Pour the reproductive material: plaster, Crystal Resin, reconstituted stone; unmold after drying. Allow to dry and decorate.

Latex

Apply the latex with a brush on the object to be molded. At first, you will have taken care to protect your brushes by coating them with dishwashing liquid. Allow the first layer to dry 10 minutes. Apply a second coat. On this layer still wet, place the gauze to strengthen the mold and immediately apply a third layer on top. Allow to dry 10 minutes and apply a fourth layer. Allow to dry 6 hours.

Using Gédéo’s plaster strips, make a supporting shell. Demold the shell once dry. To prevent the latex from sticking to itself, sprinkle the outside of mold with Gédéo’s Demolding Talc and unmold.
