Casting mold

Casting mold

In this lesson, students learn what casting molds are and design their own mold. Then they use either chocolate, wax, soap or gelatin as casting material to see if the fluid filled the mold’s cavity completely. How complex the casting model is can affect the overall look of the created object.
