We have the good fortune of currently making cabinets for a couple who are both artistic. Natalie will be making the ceramic pulls by hand, by casting her own fist then shrinking it to 1/3 it’s real size. The technique involves a material called “Reducit Pattern Compound”. This material shrinks when it dries, keeping perfect proportion.
To get the size desired, Natalie first makes a mold from her fist, then uses that mold to make a reduced version in Reducit. That is still too large, so she then repeats the process using the already once reduced model. The completed mold is then used to cast the pulls in ceramic.
