Large casts require a lot of preparation and effort before, during, and after the body casting day.
A release cream is applied to assure a bubble free cast with high detail.
I usually use a special skin safe silicone with additives to reduce chances of it grabbing small hairs.
Extra fast set plaster bandages are used to create a stiff support shell for the soft silicone detail layer.
The final sculpture will be created by filling the inside of the negative mold with HydroCal or or a similar museum quality plaster.
This is the rough cast, I will need to let it dry then I can do some clean-up and finish work.
