Making the mold

prep of the mold-base + mold being cast with gypsum

A few snapshots of Thomas' affairs at the workshop today: casting the mold for our cone-prototypes.

Mold after the gypsum hardened

This is what it looked like after pealing away the plastic walls.
Now for the next step: taking the original out...

finished mold!

It took Thomas a lot of wriggling with a lot of tools and a few quite nerve-racking moments, but eventually the 3d-printed model came out of the mold in one piece. Luckily.

Annoyingly we have to wait for the mold to dry completely before we can start casting liquid clay in it. D*mn.
We'll put in on a heater then and wait. :-|
