WED clay/molding

Hey guys, I need a little advice on making a mold off of WED clay..I'm new to the stuff, and I LOVE it, but I am used to sculpting with monster clay, so I was curious about molding off of WED ..I'm pretty sure from what ive learned watching mr. Gillis' videos, is that you have to seal the clay with crystal clear? I need to go back and re-watch the video, but I figured I'd get a little more in depth information here..

attached is what I am working on at the moment! (still needs some refinement, but I think its coming along pretty good!)

thanks in advance guys

    You are correct about the krylon crystal clear.  You'll need to seal the clay prior to molding.

  • Now, how "dry" should it be prior to coating it in crystal clear?

    The clay surface should not be wet to the touch, but not so dry that it begins to crack.  As long as you have not added water for a few hours you should be good.

  • thank you for the advice! first molding worked very well, even though I felt it wasnt quite dry enough. Just did the 2nd mold last night of this skull. (dont have pics yet of the 1st mask sculpt, but will soon)
