Casting a ‘soap on a rope’ duck.

This is purely made for slipcasting processes, i have used clay as a base, potters plaster for the cast, wood for the sides, c;ay to fill the gaps, rope to hold it together and soap to stop the two moulds from bonding.

i will upload the pictures of the finished duck before firing when the mould is dry!

I have added a link below of somebody on wordpress documenting the step by step tutorial on bow to make a ceramic slipcast mould.
