Scroll through the images to the left and watch the process to create a plaster mold for foam casting. This presentation was given at the KCACTF Region 7 conference.
For this piece I created a plaster mold using the same process as described in the above slides. The only difference was that I sculpted the positive out of Plasticine and used it to create the mold. This particular project was challenging because we wanted a specific texture to the foam skin. I was able to modify the ratio of the A/B foam mixture to create a more porous foam that would hold up to the constant abuse from the juggling that was done with them. The image to the left was how it held up after 14 shows.
