Moulage moldmaking

I thought somewone might be interested in my Moulage experiment.

The photo shows the results

The image on the left is the Chavant NSP clay model

The image in the middle is the Moluage block type mold made over the model

The image on the right is the Willow Mist wax cast in the moulage mold

Moulage is a lot like alginate but it's much less expensive. It's also reusable up to 100 times and it's non-toxic.

Looks like a great way to teach a class on moldmaking. Sculpt a Plasticine model Paint on the Moulage and than paint on some wax as a mothermold. Than cast some wax in the mold. Start to finnish in less than an hour and all the materials are reusable.
The next thing I'm going to try is casting some Plaster in the Moulage mold.
