The Creative Paradise Inc. SG02 Shells Sprig Mold has ten various shells and aquatic shapes, ranging in size from 1-3/4” to 4-1/2”.
Sprig Molds are for adding pre-made designs to clay.
- Press clay into molds.
- Push and flatten the clay using your fingers, a tool, or a ruler.
- The plaster will absorb some of the moisture from the clay, making the clay shrink slightly as it dries.
- Pull out and attach to thrown or slab-built pieces.
Tips to use:
- Shapes can be standalone designs or as part of a larger piece.
- Smooth clays lacking course grogs are preferred to minimize damage and wear to the detail of the mold.
- These molds are great for the classroom.
- You can make several molds an hour.
- Sprig molds work well with kiln-firing clay, self-hardening clay, and even dough.
