Mold Making Services
ASRNYC offers mold making and casting services in NYC and its surrounding areas. ASRNYC produces rubber molds from clay designs, plaster models, and original plaster ornaments suitable to our client’s need for detail, texture, shape, and dimension. This unique skill set is an integral component to producing new architectural plaster designs and for complex historical restoration work.
Molds are made to order in a variety of ways. A mold can be cast using a plaster or gypsum-based mixture, or a silicone mold can be created by pouring liquid rubber into the negative space. The process starts with clay sculpting and ends with a one-of-a-kind mold that can produce hundreds of identical copies. Rubber molds are often used for conservation work due to their strength, durability, and water resistance. This creates an affordable option when multiple pieces need to be replicated from an original design. Conversely, gypsum or plaster molds are generally used when detailed accuracy is required beyond what the naked eye is capable of seeing under normal lighting conditions.
The mold making, and casting process is time-consuming and requires a great deal of skill and patience. The mold must be carefully crafted in the desired shape, thickness, and level of detail. It is then allowed to dry out completely until ready to receive its liquid rubber coating. Once completed, the mold will need to cure prior to being used for production purposes.
