Cast Plaster Wall Sculpture
A nonrepresentational wall hung plaster sculpture is created in one class session!
Cast Plaster Wall Sculpture Process:
- A large slab of clay is hollowed out to create a bowl-like form. This process is somewhat spontaneous and adaptable to hard-edge and organic contour shapes.
- Texture and optional mixed media are applied to the cavity of the clay. Experimentation leads to somewhat unexpected results! The clay is the negative shape of the plaster; concave depressions in the clay come out as raised areas on the plaster and the left side becomes the right side.
- Liquid plaster is poured into the finished clay mold.
- Once the plaster has cured, the clay is removed, and the plaster is cleaned.
- Lastly, surface treatment is applied to the plaster. Plaster is an ideal surface for a variety of wet and dry media including paint, graphite, ink, and stains. Additional texture may also be added with carving tools.
