Making moulds part 2

The latex must be carefully dried using a hair dryer.

Using a brush apply a thin layer to the surface of the mould.
Dry each layer with a hair dryer.
Apply up to 12 layers. The latex now starts to dry into a thick white solid.


Cut small pieces of paper and paint them onto the surface of the mould with the liquid latex. Dry each layer and repeat 8 time or until the mould is thick enough.
Allow it to dry overnight before carefully removing it from the original.

Small pieces of paper are painted into the mould to give it structural strength.
