Tonight I have been working on the from scratch goat-like guy. I reinforced the cardboard and evened it up down to the underbelly. Then I added the first layer(s) of plaster cloth...yay! It feels like it has been forever since I worked with the wet plaster cloth!
|And oh yeah...I had to cut a lot of plaster cloth strips in half...for this layer I don't need triangles, just half strips to cover the areas quickly.|
|The first piece of wet plaster cloth goes on.|
Whew -- that is enough for tonight...plus now that layer needs to dry. I wonder how much the wet cardboard will distort the basic shape...I was going to not cover the very top of the from scratch goat-like guy's back but I thought I'd better keep everything even -- wetness-wise. We'll see if that was a good idea or not.
