This was my first project in my 3-D class last semester. We learned how to make 2-part plaster molds and how to do slip casting. I cast a Ben Franklin action figure then turned the casts into bowling pins. Then I painted each one and sewed a costume to make them into different historical figures. I made a little display with a long bowling alley as well. These made it into the Foundation Show at the end of this year!! I am very happy. The historical figures are Marie Antoinette, Pocahontas, Ivan the Terrible, Caesar, Cleopatra and Elizabeth I. Here are some pictures!







I wish I had some close ups but as these are now in storage for the show (yay!) I can't take any myself. Thoughts?

Those are too cool!  Grin  Are any parts of them polymer clay?  And did the crashing from being hit if the game was ever played crack the plaster parts?

Nope they're slip. I'm not sure how they ended up in the polymer clay category, I just tried to go with ceramics. The game will NEVER be played. I am never letting anyone near it haha. Lots of fired clay pieces should not come into contact with each other by means of throwing, rolling, etc.

Oh, I see.  Then you'll want the 2 Pottery, Ceramics, Etc. boards though rather than the 2 Polymer Clay boards (which are all in the same "POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY" main category)... confusing, I know:

That's all well and good but I can't figure out how to move the post, I'm pretty sure the moderator has to do that. So hopefully they will see and move it.

you can move your own thread, if you go to the very bottom of the page of your page you will see a "move topic" button to the left.  If you click this, a window will come up with a list of places you can move this thread to.  Pick the one you want and it will move when you click the button MOVE TOPIC.
