paper casts

After a great deal of 'patting' the paper pulp into the mould (it took hours until the water was adequately removed from the pulp), I left the paper to dry in the studio.

Weeks after, the paper was finally dry and it could be taken out of the mould.

Here is the result:

I am pleased with the result, especially given that it was my first attempt at the paper cast process.

Although the paper is white, when pinned to the wall (as intended), the three dimensional nature of the cast is emphasised by the varied tonal qualities produced by the shadows and lighting conditions.
