Plaster Casting: First Press of Model Mold

19 Mar
plaster casts

torso molds from plaster, or gesso

Before beginning the paper mache sculpture,  I  create a single, unique  plaster cast cameo of each model by pouring a layer of plaster into the torso mold.  I do this only once so the castings are not  a number in a series of 3-D prints. When plaster is dry, I release the casting and sculpt around the edges.  I will write on the edge. These front chest sculptures are displayed on a wall.
