drape mold

   A mold in which the outside shape of a form is used. An example: use a hemisphere as a drape mold to make a bowl from a slab of clay. Let a sheet of tissue paper between the two act as a release agent. If such a bowl were made by pressing a slab into the inside of a hemispheric form, that form could be called a drape mold, a slump mold, or a press mold.
