By customizing your molds you can increase the versatility of your mold and you can add more of your own artistic style to your pieces. Here are just a few of the many ways to use these molds as a starting point.
If you'd like to change the contour of your mold you can by adding a coil of clay to the mold. Shown here is the Medium Ellipse altered to create more curve on the sidewall.
Changing the sidewall of your Slump mold.
Changing the sidewall of your Hump mold simply by adding a coil of clay. Smooth the coil while turning the mold on a banding wheel..
You can make "Donuts" to conserve shelf space. Just add a plastic or masonite bat to create a floor to support the inserted slab.
Just pour the Slump side partially.
If you would prefer to have a floor then brush on mold soap and pour again.
And this will be your result.
The donut on the right was modified with a coil added to the sidewall and then poured.
