Manufactioning of the silicone mould - working steps

- the arranged reliefs - silicone-film onto the reliefs - gesso-coat onto the silikocone - finished mould


Manufacturing of the silicone-mould: For the framing of the hallway recesses I needed reliefs for about 32 running meters. Considering the average size of a relief of 12 x 18 cm a total of nearly 300 pieces is needed. The children of the four classes moulded about 92 clay originals which I had to transfer into plaster and then multiply to have a sufficient number of pieces for the wall. For this I had to make silicon moulds to be filled with plaster several times.
