Thanks Dennis for the Modigliani site. It's a great resource. The sculpture
examples offer a great opportunity for a subtractive sculpture. I'm
thinking pouring a block of plaster in a half gallon milk carton and cutting
away. I'd like to go bigger. Any ideas?
Thanks all for the plaster to vermiculite ratios. When I sent the request
out I was unaware of the discussion going on about the safety of
vermiculite. I hope I didn't confuse the issue. My plans are for my Studio
in Art students to pay a great deal of attention to the Modigliani
sculptures currently on exhibit here in Buffalo
(http://www.whoismodi.com).It's a great exhibit and would recomend it to
everyone. Of course coming here to Buffalo in Dec. and January would provide
the extra benefit of experiencing our winter.
