I made a plaque of Cthulhu for the Monster Swap. I carved the original in plasticine, then layered little pieces of plaster wrap over that (with Vaseline as a release of course), waited for it to firm up a bit, pried it off, patched it up. Let it dry all the way, painted it, attached it to heavy board, lacquered it and voila! The finished plaque is 12" in diameter and super lightweight. I hung it on my wall on a tack! I think I found a new technique I might have to use again.

Up close and personal:
