The lovely Joseph Ford came to my studio to pose for my new series of male torso sculptures.
I use plaster bandages, mod-roc. And warm water to stop Jo from hitting the roof.
Almost there…But as you can see, it is a pretty messy job.
Once I have covered the entire area with plaster bandages, I try to re-enforce the cast with ordinary plaster of Paris. But, before the plaster had time to cure properly, the entire cast started to slide off Jo’s body. I guess perhaps we used too much baby oil.
But luckily, the cast held without cracking.
The pictures are taken by Matt from Shimuzu photography.
I use body casting to create molds from which I make my ceramic torsos.
