Handmade mosaic bowl. Looks almost like a cinnamon bun! I made this bowl using mesh and plaster cast strips with thin set. Now I'm starting to put stained glass on it. Fun!!

Self-ExpressiveMasks-2:When casting a hand or arm, do NOT wrap it completely with strips of plaster gauze! Instead, plaster ONE side, remove, and let dry until firm. Then, slip the cast back on and plaster the OTHER side, leaving a narrow gap which can be closed with plaster gauze when it is OFF the hand. (Ask me how I came to acquire this bit of sculptural wisdom--ha!)

mosaic doll - wip - Started adding stained glass to the porcelain doll this afternoon. Maybe it's a little less creepy now?? I hope so!
