Hello everyone, Hope everyone is doing well. I want to make a mould for an angular bowl. I have attached a sample picture taken from the internet. I wanted to understand how many parts are needed when making a mould, not necessarily for this bowl but for any other ware. some are 2 parts and some go uptown 4 parts, but how to decide how many parts are needed and why they are needed. Thanks a lot.
Has anyone used a sheet of plastic, that has been vacuum formed to the shape of a plaster mould, as a way of quickly removing clay that has been pressed into it? Im keen to find alternative ways of releasing the clay quickly on my homemade ram press. I live in the UK and sourcing the materials to make an air release mould is very pricey and difficult. If anyone knows whether the idea above would work or has an alternative suggestion, I would really appreciate the help!
