Casting with molds and Laminate Casting

Students must prepare and bring materials to class - see below

This course introduces two different sculptural papermaking techniques: casting with molds, which result in a solid sculpture composed of thick cotton pulp; and laminate casting, which results in a hollow sculpture made of thin paper.


Casting requires a hydrocal plaster box-mold, the dimensions of which should not exceed 11” x 14” x 2”. It is best to bring in a small, simple mold with no undercuts for your first time casting. This class will not cover mold-making, therefore students will need to prepare a plaster mold prior to class. When preparing your plaster mold, please allow sufficient time (at least two days) after curing to dry out as much as possible. This will accelerate the drying time of your paper pieces. Other types of molds will be discussed and demonstrated in class.


Laminate Casting is similar to papier mache but uses pressed sheets of wet handmade paper in a layering process. These sheets are applied to the outside of an object and left to dry. The resulting laminate cast sculpture can either remain on the object or be cut off and patched when dry. Students should bring in an object on which to laminate cast. Avoid objects that cannot withstand moisture, have concave surfaces, or undercuts.
Please note: you will leave your molds and castings at the Dieu Donné studios to dry (usually 2 - 7 days). Please plan to retrieve your molds and castings within two weeks of the date you took the class. Dieu Donné cannot accommodate these materials for longer than two weeks.

Price includes a $35 materials fee.
