Topic Subject : RE: Casting Hockey player

Casting fabric is not as difficult as this thread makes out . . . though it
requires a bit of practice. I am attaching a picture of a Roy Butler piece
which is almost 90% fabric based. Roy has stopped contributing to the forum
because of past rude responses. But he does read it.

Roy has shown me his marvelous technique which I have used on a few pieces
with exquisite results.

Perhaps members can convince him to rejoin the forum as he a font of
technical expertise. Send your fan mail to: rbicom@earthlink.net

Warmest regards

Ed

RE: Casting Hockey player:--

Maybe the fabric can be treated first with a release agent or treat the
fabric with a clear acrylic?

Re: Casting Hockey player:--
I don't know if you could get a sample of the fabric of his shirt or
similar, but I have managed to cast some fabrics without any release
agent. It works better on fabrics with a very tight weave, particularly
modern man-made slightly shiny fabrics. If you can get a duplicate you
could run some tests. You have to use a very strong, thick mix of
alginate and pull it off very slowly...in some ways it's easier if your
model can slip out of the shirt when you come to demould him, leaving
the loose shirt still stuck in the mould and then you can take all the
time you want to carefully peel the fabric out.

other than that, the only thing i can think of is to sculpt on a fake
shirt after you've done the cast.
