Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0713461578, Hardcover)

Experience has confirmed John Mill's belief that modelling, and the necessary technical aspects that accompany this skill, must be taught. This book provides all the necessary information and instruction for a student of sculpture to master the technique of casting. After defining casting, Mills goes on to describe and explain the individual techniques used with plaster of Paris, plastics, clay, wax and sand, and metals. Large, clear diagrams and specially prepared practical photographs clarify the detailed instructions. As well as covering all the basic techniques of preparing the materials, making the moulds, and removing the finished sculpture, this book provides many tips throughout, from how to ensure the sculpture is sufficiently reinforced to making tools cheaply and effectively in your own studio.
