First make the moldbox using a box of some sort. The easiest is to use a cardboard box with a trash bag liner.
Spray the outside with an adhesive and press on a trash bag for a liner.
Hot glue in the duck so it won’t float. You’re now ready to make your mold.
We’re using used ComposiMold that we melted in a double boiler. Pour in the ComposiMold. Fill up and around the duck.
Let the mold cool to solidify. We left this overnight.
Pull off the mold box and pull out the original duck. You are ready to make your casting.
We will be using ComposiMold’s new Plaster specifically designed for ComposiMold and Impressive Putty Molds.This duck uses 5 pounds of ComposiMold Plaster.
Mix the plaster 3 parts plaster to 1 part water and pour into the duck mold.
Let solidify for 1 hour,
Remove the Duck
Reuse the mold for more ducks or re-melt for new shapes
Let’s make it. Thank you.
