Plaster practice

As part of the workshop that we could choose. I had decided to go for using plaster as a fine art material.

I had planned to make an owl using an existing ornament but it seems that the plan is on hold for the moment.

I first of all made a form of a head sculpture using an existing mould:

Face with a slight nasal problem

It sorted of reminded me of the silver surfer from fantastic four.

I then opted to cast my hand in plaster to make random shapes and to see the effect of plaster (which I quite like)

Broken hand

Unfortunately the piece that was casted wasn’t very strong which caused the fingers to break. It looked kind of cool, almost like a deserted island in a horror or thriller.

 

A bit shakespearean no?
