Stop Motion Demon

Making a Matrix Mould Tutorial page 1

A finished sculpture of a demon. This is to be molded in silicon as a stop motion animation puppet. The first step is to split the model into easier to cast pieces. I obviously sculpted the model with this process in mind.

Next, cover the back in cling film. This stops the model getting covered in clay.

A clay wall is then built up.

Once the clay wall is completed, the front half of the sculpture is covered in clingfilm and a clay case is built around it.

Keys are added, these will help the two halves of the mold align correctly.

The front of the mold is then covered in fibre glass.
