CIMG5051 I’m totally “plastered” now.

The end goal of this process was to make a plaster mask of my face, as documented in this blog post. This was done by my friends M and P. They used to make plaster masks based on real human faces. They would first make a cast of a person’s face from alginate, a gooey material that captures the shape of your facial features to a tiniest detail. On its basis they would make an actual mask out of plaster.
