It’s easy to make fascinating figurines, relief sculptures, and other items of art to beautify your home or to give to your friends.
Simply cast them with original Agnew’s Water Putty using any suitable plastic or flexible rubber film. Start by mixing Agnew’s Putty and water together to the consistency of heavy cream.
Immediately, pour the mixture into the mould, tapping the mould gently while filling to bring air bubbles to the surface.
After the putty has set, carefully remove the cast from the mould and fill in any air bubbles which might remain with a new mixture of putty.
An interesting way to give an attractive carved appearance to plain furniture, doors, or walls is to make a number of casts from moulds of carved plaques.
For an extra strong hanger, insert a screw or wire into the back of the plaque while Agnew’s is still wet. Agnew’s Water Putty casts made from moulds may be joined together and fastened to the flat surface of the item you wish to transform. With these casts you can duplicate the appearance of beautifully carved Spanish furniture. Casts may be painted or coloured.
Moulds are available in a wide range of materials and subjects. This plastic mould is used in casting the Aquarius plaque. The mould is quite deep but need not be filled to the top if a thinner cast is desired.
