making a mold from bisque

Recommended Posts

should a bisqued piece be glazed before making a plaster mold from it?

 

what do people use as a mold release? ive used murphys oil soap and i really dont like it.

 

 

A use a mold release from Laguna clay co-I can go check out the name-Its purelube-I buy the gallon size.

Green soap from a drug store works just as well.

I know folks lacquer them as well to seal then soap them

Sealing them first works the best then use the release agent or soap just before pouring in the plaster.

I have used plain old dish detergent as a mold release, but then it was a one time deal. If I were doing it on a regular basis, I would probably use a commercial product.
