Since my school system will be in full swing until mid June, I am making
plans to keep those little hands and minds busy! I poured plaster blocks today
in milk cartons for my eighth graders. WE will be taking the plaster blocks
outside during the last week to create subtractive sculpture.
QUESTION - - - Is it best to make plaster sculpture with dry plaster blocks
that have been allowed to dry our or damp blocks that have been recently
poured and stored in plastic? I guess the damp plaster would make less mess but
I fear that our sculpture tools will rust from the damp plaster. I could use
your expertise! Thanks.
