Can't put back the parts into the mold

Postby keithktam » Fri Jan 13, 2017 5:04 am

Hi, trying to do the second part of the mold now and facing a problem, in order to put the mold release into the tiny corner of the molds due to the shape and form of the parts, and also I had to clean out the clay from those areas as well, I had to take the parts out from the mold, and now they don't fit 100% back in!!! what should i do?? should i have not taken the parts out in the first place?? Please give advice cause i don't want to throw away the mold.....
Many thanks in advance

If making a two-part mould, never remove the former before pouring the second half.
