Silicone Molds

Preparing the silicone molding material

A clear silicone casting material was prepared before applying the silicone to the surface of the painting.

Applying the Silicone

The silicone is applied in a thin layer over designated areas of the painting using a rubber roller and mylar. After a 24 hour period the silicone cures and can be carefully peeled away from the surface, providing a perfect reverse of craquelure patterns and brush strokes.
