How do you make a molding?
Faithful reproduction of a sculpted work, the molding results from a long and meticulous process which is based on the creation of a mold and then its exploitation to obtain multiple prints, whether made of plaster, resin, baked clay or bronze.
Our moldings are made from a silicone mold, made in direct contact with the original work.
Each draw requires a series of traditional gestures requiring mastery and know-how: casting, demolding, resumption of seams, drying of the work before laying a patina to make the appearance of the original and restore the effect of passage time.
The craftsmen must start each operation again to obtain a new molding, each piece is unique.
