Making mould!!

It's been ages since I made any moulds. So, when the feeling strikes I decided to cast a face in plaster bandages. I remember being inspired by George Segal, the sculptor who makes his work entirely in this particular material. It's amazing how he captures the essence of body gestures and illustrates the mood with these "white" body sculptures in public spaces. When I see images of his sculptures, I feel a sense of eeriness as if time has stopped to preserve a certain moment. 

When the mould dries properly, I will make a positive plaster mould so I can fix some details and manipulate the cast. It should be tremendous fun!!
