|They're apparently doing a front/back plaster gauze clamshell mold. It seems they paused here to snap some pictures.||They did a lot of work in taping-up a cardboard cutoff to define the bottom plane. See how her arms are supported, her lower legs are shrouded, and of course the Vaseline.|
We bid a fond farewell to those excellent nipples.
|Enough fun; they get to work in earnest. Front gauze
receives a coat of plaster for strength.
I would have gauzed her back before plastering the front, and the strips of gauze would barely meet each other at the split-line, and would extend outward from that line about an inch to form a definite parting surface.
Fred Reenders of the Netherlands is a master of plaster bandage casting (this is not him nor does he know who it is.) See his site -
|Here they are, finishing the rear. We cannot see
any demarcation separating front from back here. Looks like trouble to
me. Must have done something to part the clamshell halves.
So when they pulled the front and back molds off our wonderwoman, they probably put them back together and let them dry thoroughly. Reassembling them prevents warpage. That's how I do it.
