This class will cover the use of clear RTV molds for the production of multiple components.  We will cover the technical aspects of model making, use and benefits of clear RTV molds and mold compounds, mold refinement and injection as well as set up for investment.  Models produced may be either for one of a kind or production work depending on the need.

We will also be covering the use of multiples and repetition as powerful design elements in jewelry.
Some prior knowledge of casting and fabrication techniques is appropriate.
