What a Relief: Make Your Own Sculpture Mold

Pre-registration required: register here

Join us for an introduction to relief mold making. A relief has shallow 3-dimensional components with a flat back. If you’re interested in making your own sculptures, relief molds are an excellent introduction to mold making. 

This workshop shows you how to make a mold with gelatin and glycerin, introduces you to materials you can use in your mold, and demonstrates how you can use your relief sculptures.  

Because the creation of a mold and relief sculpture both take time to cure, the creation of the relief will be a demonstration only.  

Materials needed:

  • 6 oz glycerin
  • 2 oz plain gelatin
  • ¾ cup boiling water and ¼ cup cold water
  • bowl, spoon, and mesh strainer
  • refrigerator
  • lidded jar (if not using all the mixture)
  • an object with a 3D side you want to recreate (an object with a flat back will make an exact replica: any completely 3D object can be used to get half of the print)
  • a pan big enough to hold your mold mixture (for example, if doing a small object like a key, you can use a muffin tin) 

Facilitated by Mike Campbell, Center for Creativity Student Ambassador
