When I have a big and especially long box as seen here, I need to add a support for the walls, otherwise the huge amount of silicone will bend the walls. That doesnâ€™t look good nor will this save me any silicone, and the box might burst.
Registration keys are important in this step. These are essential for two-part molds.
Itâ€™s similar to huge fish tanks, they also have a support like these, it prevents them from breaking. I prefer to have a burst mold box over a burst fish tank, though.
Iâ€™m using the cap of a pen here to make the keys.
Make sure the clay is filled to the edges in a clean line, and the surface is flat.

With them I can easily put together both mold parts for the cast.
