Here is what I did today for my next sculpt. Plaster over the wire armature. I will use 3-5 rolls of plaster bandages for thickness.

- Plaster bandages are cut into strips of 30 cm length (approx. 12 inches) and laid the first layer over the armature.
- Spray over with a water spray thing - u know the ones for flowers/plants.
- Then flatten the layers over the armature. let the edges be dry for later.
- then add more layers jsut on the armature not over the edges until thick enough
- WHen its thick enough the first layer edges can be wrapped over and onto the top layers creating a clean round edge around it.
- let dry in sunlight or heat lamps.
- Add more layers later if not thick enough.
