Just finished pouring the 5th section- the base for this mold and it can come apart in a half hour or hour.
It took a box 16″ square and 5-1/4″ deep to fill it high enough to cover his nose by about one inch.
I also ordered some slip to try out, it was a real pain trying to find what I wanted, and then when I did, I found they can’t ship those 2 gallon boxes via UPS. A couple of places can ship one gallon slip containers but one place had a $26 price plus UPS for one gallon.
As I know it took one gallon of rubber to cast the sculpture, I’ll need to have a couple of gallons of slip as one isn’t enough.
I was going to look into mixing my own but then by the time I bought a 50# bag, plus the UPS, chemicals needed I read the instructions on mixing it said to mix for 2-3 hours with the mixer so I guess mixing it in the 5 gallon pail with a jiffy mixer and drill isn’t going to work, so I found my normal outlet has slip but the UPSable size is 5 gallons, about $26 for the slip and $40 for the shipping and ordered that even though I strongly dislike paying almost twice what a product costs to buy just to get it shipped to me! I don’t have the equipment to mess with mixing batches of dry slip.
