First exercise in Carving involved filling a cardboard box with plaster of paris. The volume was so large it required three buckets to fill it, and the junction between two of the layers must have had water in it or the mix was wrong as it resulted in a soft layer that ran through the whole piece. Initially I excavated the soft layer intending to fill it in, but then I decided I quite liked it there..
I had feeling the head as it appears here was not quite finished and so over the Christmas holidays have revisited it to expose the skull underneath on her right hand side. After all, we are all more or less the same underneath.
