ohh, that's smart.. Hey, you should wait atleast a day before getting discouraged about the comments Wink some people just don't know what to say.
Really cool. Wish the angel pics were bigger, so I could see better.

Those look beautiful. I am sure they are even more stunning in person! I love the gothic angel!

That's great. I 've been wanting to do casting, but never get off my butt and do it! I love the play doh twist though. I'll maybe actually try it.

   This was done with Plaster of Paris, right?  I haven't worked with that since I was a child, but thanks for the tips and inspiration.  Do you think that this kind of project could also be done with paper mache, as I'm interested in trying to recycle my paper that way?

Yeah I suppose you could use it with paper mache and i did use plaster of paris and quick crete I have a recipe for paper mache I take the paper run it through a paper shredder then boil the paper in water for like 10 to 15 minutes then i use one of those paint stirring attachments for a drill to turn the paper to pulp, I use a window screen to drain the water off then ring it out in an old tee shirt then I use ready made wall paper paste and mix it together it gives it more of a clay consistancy much easier for molding and sculpting

Is very nice!, I love the angel

You can also use latex, just have to brush it on the object you want to copy and then when is dry you can pour plaster...also clay is a good and cheap way to leave the copy and then you pour plaster.

and a lil tip for your paper mache dough, just add a tablespoon of chalk, because as paper is organic in a time it could grow some fungus and with the chalk you neutralize that Smiley

I do wish to see bigger pictures. I don't really understand what you're talking about with the table, but I think I get the gist.
