Have you ever wanted to dome something only to find you don’t have the correct size or slope? I had that happen to me this week. So, I looked around my studio to find an object I could use that had the correct size and dome.
I pulled out these items:
2 ea. Gatorade caps
Two part silicone mold compound
Two part epoxy
A scale weight
Here is what I did.
4. Allow it to set (per manufactures recommendations).
6. Mix equal parts of two part epoxy, enough to fill the mold. I added colorant to make it easy to spot the form on my cluttered workbench and just to make it fun.
Remember to lubricate the form before laying metal clay over it! Do not place the form on a hot plate to dry the clay.
