Mold making & Casting Seminars:
Very Popular - Fill Up Fast!

Smooth-Onís Mold Making & Casting Seminars continue to be extremely popular.

The two-day sessions at their facility in Easton, PA, attract a wide variety of attendees from the fields of sculpture, prototyping, jewelry making, concrete casting, architectural restoration, candle making and special effects. Participants have come from as far away as Australia and Malaysia just to attend.

Recently, we at Techno-Industrial Products held seminars in Minnesota, Wisconsin and North Dakota for the college Students. We even were able to get Traci Foley from Smooth-On to help us out for some of these seminars. All who attended were inspired and left with knowledge they could use. Many who could not attend are asking if we will do it again. The answer is, YES! If you would like to attend please contact us as we are planning for the next seminar.  CALL (262) 369-1010, E-Mail, or by Mail.

Class size is limited to maximize effectiveness and will not be increase. Light refreshments will be provided.  Call (262) 369-1010 or 866-255-9847. Due to the popularity of these seminars, slots are booked on a first-paid, first-in basis.

Life-Casting Seminars? Yes we do those, too.
