Prepare to be molded.

Creating Latex Creature Head, originally uploaded by Jamie Durrant.

I was in two minds as to use a brass shim divider or a clay wall. As this sculpture was built on top of a plaster head, I didn’t think that the thickness of the clay would support any brass shims I placed along the dividing wall, so I went with a clay shim.

I always find it a difficult process when doing these dividers as it’s so easy to damage the sculpture. I made some registration marks in the wall and then it was over to molding the little bugger.
