Reproducing a 3D Sculpture Using Brush‑On® 40 Mold Rubber

Overview

Making a brush-on mold of a 3-dimensional sculpture is an effective and inexpensive method that can be used to reproduce detail from any original model.  In this tutorial, a 3-dimensional sculpture of Joe Brown, Professor of Sculpture for Princeton University, was created by Tim Maslyn of Maslyn Studios. The goal is to reproduce this casting in a plaster modified gypsum.
