This is where the project started to seem a whole lot like work. Metal shim was pushed into the clay to delineate the separation lines for the mold pieces. Then, eighty gallons of rubber was sprayed on to the sculpture. After the rubber set it was given a supportive backing made from polyester resin and fiberglass. Both the flexible rubber mold and the rigid mother mold were then removed and cleaned. The mold has twenty seven pieces.
