Delmonico created a new topic ' Help for first character casting' in the forum. 3 weeks ago

Hi all. Total newbie to this forum and was wondering if I could get a suggestion on trying to cast my first latex head. I have attached a couple of photos of Mysterious Mose (very much a work in progress as far as sculpting), a plasticine head. I have planned to make a two-part plaster cast, making the first pour to a good place to have the seam. I assume that this seam could split the head left and right or front to back. Given the shape of the head (the little wooden "eyeballs" are going to be removed prior to casting), the big schnoz, and the open mouth, which is most likely to work? Thanks for any help you may be able to give me. Also, any suggestions for "how to" videos for working with the latex casting process would be appreciated.
