After creating the body casts I realized the plaster cloth makes the forms look very rough and rigid with all the layers of cloth. So I started to coat the casts with plaster putty which is helping to make the forms more solid and then I am able to sand them till they are smooth. I also was not a fan of the odd shape of the edges so I trimmed all of the cast to have cleaner and more organic forms.
What is next?
After the cast are all plastered with putty and sanded to perfection I am going to paint them in various colors / one shade of egg shell or off white colors. Then I need to nail down the puzzle piece placements then cast those shapes.
