Box casting is a great way to create a reverse-relief, cast-glass object with exceptional clarity. The results are typically clean and predictable, making the process ideal for producing multiple editions of a piece. In this lesson, you will learn: • How to make an alginate mold for casting multiple design elements. • How to affix those elements to the interior of a vermiculite box. • How to calculate the volume of a box mold. • And how to cast glass into the mold to create reverse-relief objects.
