Modeling and Mold Making

Modeling

The talented modelers at the Atelier practice traditional modeling techniques using hand built armatures. Sculptors can also choose to work with our partners at Digital Atelier LLC to develop a hybrid model. The use of traditional pantograph or laser scans, or CNC milled models, give you the greatest flexibility in technology as you see your creation come to life.

Mold Making

Mold making uses a variety of traditional and state of the art materials to suit the specific needs of each sculptor’s project. We work closely with you, the artist, to best understand the specific intent in order to effectively reproduce the original work. Experts in these practices create molds for a single cast or multiple editions. We can mold objects of nearly any size and with almost any surface detail. From the smallest clothing texture, to a full size reproduction of a dinosaur, we have made a successful molds of a wide range of objects.
