Cast artists and seasoned mould manufacturers usually follow a methodical process when making their art works. They choose the model and strategy the best way to go about the job well beforehand. Tools all the necessary materials and equipment are assembled ahead.
Beginners also keep things like drop cloth, gloves, containers, measuring cups, brushes, rasps, mixer and sometimes the name plates engraved prepared. Paints, plaster bandages, fillers and make-up materials are waiting.
