Plaster of Paris Techniques With Stephanie Lee & Judy Wise

Plaster of Paris casting of plastic doll.

Plaster of Paris cover and cutout arch of a small sketchbook.

Plaster of Paris, Joint Compound, Plaster Gauze...endless possibilities with these mediums and Stephanie Lee and Judy Wise have a wonderful book on the subject titled, "Plaster Studio, Mixed-Media Techniques for Painting, Casting and Sculpting," published by North Light Books.

I made this NICHO JOURNAL designed by Judy Wise. Judy says in her book, "One of my favorite uses for these little recycled books is to house my painting-a-day works. Each book becomes a tiny, irreplaceable treasure."

When was the last time you worked with Plaster of Paris? Or have you ever worked with it? The projects in this book are amazing. Take a look if you haven't seen it yet,
