An introduction to plasterworking explains the basic techniques of modeling and casting and discusses materials, equipment, and decorative finishes

Blackwell North Amer
Plasterworking is an ideal craft for the beginner. The basic process is extremely simple; sculpt a model or use a found object, paint it with latex to make a mold, and then fill the mold with plaster. Almost no specialized equipment is needed: basic kitchen utensils and household tools can be used.
Plasterworks presents all you need to know to start casting - the materials and equipment needed, the practical skills of molding and casting, the wide variety of decorative finishes, and numerous sources of design inspiration.
Clocks, mirrors, jewelry, mobiles, boxes and wall plaques can all be made easily and quickly and, as well as using your own plasterworks, there are many ready-made molds and casts available for you to decorate and transform.
With over 30 fully illustrated step-by-step projects, Plasterworks is an ideal introduction to this fascinating craft.
