I sunk the new head sculpt in plaster tonight.
Here's a few photos of the process. First, a last look at the sculpt as I make it good and slippery with Vaseline.
I put the first layer of plaster on with a brush to make sure there won't be any air bubbles close to the surface. After that I start pouring it on quickly. One thing about plaster is you have to work fast, the whole process took less than ten minutes start to finish.
I keep working the plaster with my wet fingers, adding the excess that falls off back on top. Eventually I end up with a nice 'loaf' shape mold.
I've put it away on the shelf for tonight, come back tommorrow and we'll see if I did it right.
See you next time
