Casting with Pourable Resins for the Studio Sculptor:

Demonstrated by Don Perdue, Sculptor – Educator

The focus of this demonstration workshop will be helping studio sculptors, teachers and art students choose and use pourable casting resins to make hollow castings from rubber molds. We will begin with a discussion about the several types of resins, curing times, and necessary working conditions. The discussion will be followed by demonstrating mold prepping, preparing any reinforcing needed for making particular types of castings. With the mold & reinforcements ready, we’ll move on to mixing and pouring a resin casting, allow for curing time, remove the casting from the mold, clean up the raw casting, go over a few surfacing & finished techniques, and bring it all together by deciding on a particular mounting solution. Students should plan on bringing an example of their work that they want to discuss casting. Printed reference materials as well as step by step instructions will be provided. Bring a bag lunch. Deadline to register is July 31.

Friday, August 10, 9AM-4:30PM, Tuition $185
