 Does anyone have any experience with fiberglass? How do you paint it? Is it safe?

We are thinking of doing something along this line - only we are going to use fiberglass instead of plaster gauze - then it would be weatherproof. Hubby says you can buy it at an automotive store.

Subject: outdoor sculpture question

The ag. science teacher and I want to do an integrated project for our school and are leaning towards a large outdoor sculpture of the school mascot (gotta start somewhere, right?). My first thought was to build it with a rebar and chicken wire armature and then use plaster gauze layers finished with a layer of a strong sealer of some type.
This is not my area of expertise and I would appreciate any ideas, suggestions, etc.
(ps glad we're all back)
