I've been carving a new styrofoam mold. The design is for a large square serving platter, about 15 inches across. Ok maybe 13 after it shrinks. I will make one or two (or however many it takes) prototypes from the mold-in-progress. Once I'm satisfied with the shape I will pour a layer of plaster over it. The finished surface will act like plaster, while the entire thing will be nowhere near as heavy as a solid plaster mold. I hope to have the first completed platter ready in time for Artscape in a few weeks.
