    How to make a scroll cast (part 2)

    Half of the scroll is submerged in clay.

    There is white plastic lining around this mold so that the surface will be smooth and the silicone will not stick to the wall.

    Notice a series of pins or holes around the scroll's profile.  These are negative/positive so that it will be easier to align the two parts once the mold is complete.

    Four clamps to keep it all together.

    Make a funnel with a piece of paper and start applying the RTV rubber paying attention not to generate bubbles.
