|[scrollGallery id=7]I can make modelling, moulding and casting of a piece of art, from a model or a design. For further details on:
Elastomere moulding and use of plaster, resins…etc
Plaster cast moulding is a preliminary step to a sculpture creation.
The purpose is to create a model for the final sculpture creation in stone, marble, bronze or other more contemporary materials (such as polyester resin, silicone…etc). In this case, a unique copy will be enough and the technique employed is called the ‘creux perdu’, method used since the Antique period (for example: after the creation of a clay modelling for a statue, a bas-relief, an object design…etc).
The elastomer moulding is often used in the Industry for its resistance and flexibility. The moulding will then be employed for the replication in series (this is the case for a limited edition of a bronze sculpture). Specific elastomer moulding is suitable for the skin and can be used to mould a human body and to create a perfect and faithful copy of the model.
I can realise any sort of moulding directly on the original copy (in plaster, clay, bronze, limestone, marble or resin…etc). I will then adapt the moulding technique according to the characteristics of the model to replicate and according to the type of reproduction. For example, wax would be used for the preparation of a bronze sculpture, whereas a polyester resin will be more adapted to a production in series. Resins may be coloured with the addition of metallic (bronze, aluminium…etc), mineral powders (marble, slate, graphite, etc.) or pigments. A finishing touch may be added with a patina to give a distinct appearance.
