Saturday February 15th – Life Casting Sculpture Workshop: Hand Casting & Mould Making

RM150.00RM380.00

Life casting is a historic art technique practiced by several ancient cultures. The practice of life casting was wide spread in the 19th century, during which it was closely linked to both art and science, and was considered a standard part of the sculptor’s technique. Life casting, whether interpreted as a normal sculptural process, documentary piece or affectionate souvenir, soon gave rise, with its near perfect reproduction of reality.

It is the process of creating a three-dimensional copy of a living human body, through the use of molding and casting techniques. Compared to other three-dimensional representations of humans, the standout feature of lifecasts is their high level of realism and detail. Lifecasts can replicate details as small as fingerprints and pores.

During this workshop, you’ll learn all the techniques to create a cast mould of your hands. We’ll also cover the various mould application techniques, casting materials, and finishing techniques. You’ll study the attributes of plaster, how to pour a set of good casts, limit bubbles and other imperfections, open the moulds without damaging the casts and how to detail the final product.

In conjunction with Valentine’s day, this workshop is great for a weekend activity with your loved ones. Come with your partner, friends, siblings to cast a pair of hands or come alone to cast a single hand. At the end of the session, you will bring home a hand casting to be used as a trinket dish, decor or keepsake.

*The mould created during the session is only suitable for single use, you will not be able to bring home to do multiple casts. This is due to the nature of life casting and its molding material.

– All materials & tools for the session
– If you opt for the RM 150 option, you’ll be making a mold of your hand (single hand) then cast it to create the final product
