Introducing the Anibild hand moulding set.
Designed for stop motion animation armature making and puppeteering, the Anibild hand mould will last a life time and travel with you from production to production. Choose from our 3 sizes, small medium and large hand set.
2 part compression mould
Left and right hand included
3 sizes available
Key space for armature location included
Location keys for precision compression and reduced flash/seam lines.
Semi flexible, robust nylon plastic
Heat resistant to 80℃ / 176℉ degrees
Can be used with plasticine, silicone and foam latex.
Hand sizes measured from palm to index finger tip:
Made from a dense nylon plastic (stainless steel is optional) the 2 part compression mould, with location keys, delivers a neat and tight flash/seam line.
The nylon is heat resistant to 80℃ / 176℉ degrees . For higher temperatures we would recommend stainless steel moulds, perfect for a foam bake.
Anibild moulds can be used with plasticine/coloured modelling clay, silicone and foam latex. A release agent (or similar) must be used in all cases. Release agents commonly used are Vaseline or a wax release spray (available here).
Guidance for use:
Always use a wax based release agent or similar. Painting in a thin layer of malleable wax/Vaseline does the same job.
Only compress both halves of mould together with quick release a soft jaw hand clamps. Do not use cast steel, heavy duty G Clamp or similar for risk of damaging the mould.
PLASTICINE / CLAY CASTING
If using plasticine/clay: Use warm malleable plastcicne/clay and set under pressure with a quick release hand clamp. Leave in a fridge for an hour before releasing hand form.
If using silicone, appropriate wax release agent must be used according to your brand of silicone. Let the silicone set under pressure using a quick release hand clamp for duration of recommended cure time.
For temperatures lower than 80℃ / 176℉ degrees and or fast foam baking (with a chemical cure) secure mould halves together with hand clamps and allow to cure for recommended period.
For temperatures over 80℃ / 176℉ degrees , we’d recommend purchasing stainless steel moulds for foam baking. Please be aware there is a 2 week (10 working days) delivery delay on all stainless steel moulds.
