I have a ceramic paw print which, if anyone’s not familiar, is what it sounds like, a piece of ceramic (no idea any specifications as to what type) that is a print from one of my dogs. I need to duplicate it.
My original idea was to scan the object with our 3D scanner (if it’s ever been found), then 3D print the reference item, and make a mold from that.
But who knows when we’ll be able to get back into the space or if a 3D scanner is even around any more. So could I make a silicon mold from the original ceramic piece (note: it is painted as well, I assume with acrylic paint) and have it not damage the original? And then pour plaster or whatever into the negative mold and create a new paw print that way?
