EK081 - Plaster Mold Round Base Conical Cup Mold
(Ceramic Casting Mold - Plaster Mold - Cup Mold)

It is a ceramic casting mold used for production with liquid casting slip.

Model: Cup Mold
Mouth diameter: 9 cm (3.54 inches)
Depth: 12 cm (4.72 inches) (Approximate volume of the bisque-fired clay cast using Eti ceramic casting slip at 1040°C. The volume may vary depending on factors such as the type of clay and firing temperature.)

With the ceramic casting mold, you can easily create your own forms. You can perform various techniques on the cast pieces such as carving, incised carving (sgraffito), adding handles, piercing (ajour), deformation (creating ridges, warping, cutting, etc.), stamping letters, and similar processes. Using molds is a practical way to produce unique forms in a serial manner.

Eti Sanat ceramic casting molds are made entirely of plaster. While it is possible to prepare molds using cardboard plaster upon request, it is not recommended. Molds made with cardboard plaster have a shorter lifespan, more errors, and are difficult to retouch after use.

Note: The mold dimensions are provided. Depending on the type of clay, depth of retouching, and firing temperature, there may be variations in the final size.

Instructions for use: Pour the appropriate consistency of liquid casting slip into the mold. Once it reaches the desired thickness, pour out the excess slip inside the mold. Allow the clay inside the mold to reach the appropriate consistency for detachment (this duration varies depending on the type of clay, weather conditions, and frequency of mold use). Use a trimming tool to remove any excess clay around the mouth of the mold, and then remove the piece from the mold by hand. After reaching the leather-hard stage, you can perform retouching, priming, handle attachment, decoration, and other processes.

Maintenance of the mold: After use, clean the mold with a dry sponge. If possible, let it dry in sunlight and open air. Rapid drying in an oven, on a stove, or in a similar manner reduces the lifespan and quality of the mold.
