I wish I could take this class...I live in Florida though...If you don't mind me asking, what resources have you utilized to learn how to make your flexible molds? Are there any books that you can suggest?

i learned by studying sculpture in college, then 10 years of backstage work in theatre, in addition to my own work as an artist.

My main source of knowledge was trial and error with as many materials as i could play with.

To my knowledge there are no adequate books.
