Working with Van Aken Clay and Making Molds with Ultra Cal

during my junior and senior years at Columbus College of Art and Design (ccad) I learned how to properly make molds using clay walls and using Ultracal. In my senior year I also took time to sculpt a second Dinosaur head, an Amargasaurus. I sculpted the head and neck from Van Aken, an oil based modeling clay. i then made mold walls and covered the model in Ultra cal, doing both sides to create a two part mold.
