The plaster cast and supporting clay are removed from the silicone. Any residue is cleaned away and the mould is now filled with Rencast resin. The resin core is removed, and, like the plaster core, it is ‘cleaned up’ by removing imperfections with sandpaper.
When the sculpt on the life-cast is complete, it can be submerged into cold water (preferably overnight) to release it from the surface of the plaster. Once the pieces begin to loosen, they can be easily prized off and transferred to prepared resin core (and flat surfaces for flat pieces). This is where the edges are neatened, and pore texture is refined.
