Today in the workshop……

With projects coming out of my ears it was time to get casting so that I have some casts to sculpt on, and yes that does mean many new prosthetics! Using the totally cost effective Mod roc (plaster bandage) and the gorgeous Catherine as my model I made a cast of her back and chest, which was in two parts. It was important to make sure there were at least two layers of the plaster bandage and so that it was strengthened with extra bandage across the chest, back and along the edges of the cast. Shellac and vaseline were used on the first half on the edge of the cast so that the second half would not stick the casts together (this would make it really difficult for removal!)

Looking forward to completing the cast tomorrow! Then I can start my favourite part…. the sculpting!!
