First Year – Plaster Cast with Tutor Kim Amis

Our 1st year students have started this week with Plaster Cast taught by the wonderful Kim Amis. They have been casting all sort of interesting shaped vegetable or piece of fruit, like miniature pumpkins, broccoli, peppers, bananas, apples and pears.

The purpose of the six-day project is to understand clay, plasters, plaster bandage, alginate, and silicone rubbers as raw materials and their relevance to professional moulding and casting. All plaster casts produced during the six-day casting block will be suitable subject matter for the gilding project to follow. In addition to handout sheets, students produce their own daily notes that are compiled and presented as a process log on completion of the project.
