Plaster and Wire Sculpture

Model figures, animals or abstract forms using chicken wire and plaster.

First, you will work out an idea for your sculpture. There are plenty of books on artist’s work to help you with your ideas. The next step is constructing an armature made of wire and chicken wire based on your sketches/ideas. After this, plaster bandages will be applied to cover the armature. Plaster of Paris can be mixed and applied to complete a sculpture with the approximate dimensions of 50 x 50 x 40 cm.
