Following on from the video on latex molding an ammonite fossil, we make a seven piece mother mold to house the latex mold. This video is a short and brief video showing the process and more in depth videos about molding can be found on the channel.
There are many ways to make molds and this video is showing how we make molds here at present, which is our preferred way – it works for us and what works for one person may not work for another.
The model in this video is a 500 million year old ammonite fossil which came out of the mold in one piece. The mold which has been made from the ammonite fossil is now ready to create replica fossils with concrete or any other appropriate material which is compatible with the latex mold.
