This week we molded our tile in plaster. We reduced the scale of the tile to have a length of 21 cm.
As usual we drew a few sketches to better visualize the work we had to do and the correct measurements we needed.
We measured and cut the cardboard of the mold and glued reinforcements on the sides and painted a thin layer of shellac seal it all. Our four sided dam was ready.
The plaster fitting in the mold. Unfortunately, the plaster we created was too liquid which made the cardboard a little wavy. But it didn't affect the visible final product.
Speaking of which...
The process of casting the mold and creating the plaster was very interesting, a first timer for all of us.
The Docta Manus in action... ... and a columned "city" appeared on our table
Finally, we drew an exploded axonomery of our mold to even better visualize how all the parts fit in the mold.
