My First Plaster Model
Thursday 23rd March § 2 Comments
In fact this model, or perhaps better call it a sculpture contains an under-skeleton of chicken wire, covered in papier mache followed by mod-rock (gauze dipped in plaster) followed by a few coats of plaster (with one coat to go). Hopefully I can then sand the shape down into a nice shine, but I’m terribly conscious that time is now seriously running out. Anyway, here’s the picture I promised:
Does using warm water retard or increase the rate that plaster dries? I know plaster heats up as it sets so does heated water help it on its way?
