Japanese Wave Body Cast
28 x 15" Mixed Media on Canvas
Body casting is a multi-step process. Starting with plaster roll, a material similar to that which a Dr would use to cast a broken limb, the model is cast. Once it is fully formed and dried, the cast is then typically attached to a canvas and treated with Gesso. Depending on the design for that specific cast, it is painted or collaged, (or both), then prepared for resin. Usually 2-3 layers of resin are applied, which takes 24 hours to cure after the final coat. The resin will leave the cast protected, with a hard and shiny finish. Body casts take about 1-2 weeks to create.
