L.P,
You have the right idea..it can be a beautiful and simple =
process.You need to be aware of what is known as undercuts..and if you =
can avoid these it will work well. Also, in case you aren't familiar =
with plaster, it does require a long time to dry. I do a lot of paper =
casting and clay mold work, but I' m pressed for time now as I am doing =
post grad work for my certification.
If you have specifics you can contact me directly and I'll respond in =
the next few days.

Went to the local arts show yesterday and saw some cast paper. This =
gave me an idea to do that with a class. Anyone else ever done this =
with their classes, and if so, can you give me some pointers? =20

The idea I had is to have the kids make a clay relief, then make a =
plaster negative from that, then use the plaster negative to pour paper =
positives, and have them paint the result.
