Hey everybody hope your holidays were bangin. The stars and planets have kinda aligned in my world in that it’s a very slow time of the year for most anybody selling anything to anybody else… so, Jessie and I have finally kicked into gear with our slip-casting project we received a grant for back in October. We have been casting blanks out of Plaster, carving them, and made a mold or two as well.
Been using different vessels to make the blanks, including beer cans, coddle boards, and tar-paper cylinders. Then we carve them up using sure-forms, scrapers, cutters, sandpapers, gitters, and what-you-needs. After the desired shape is achieved, we set it up, soap it up, and either build or pour the mold out of plaster.Jessie’s half-gem hanging planter, inverted.
