WK2- Art Experience- Plaster Mold

imageimageimageimage                                      I have never handled plaster before this, and I was really nervous to mess up. Reality, the most difficult part was discouraging my dogs’ participation. Once I made my mold, I mixed my plaster, but the first go I didn’t mix enough. My goal was to achieve and preserve max detail. After I poured I left my masterpiece to sit- the best part ab0ut doing this from home was having plenty of things to occupy myself with in the meantime, like Netflix and my dogs. I had let it sit for well over an hour before digging up my creation. I was really excited to see how the shape turned out, hoping my mold held up from pouring. I was surprised how well the sand held from looking at my mold. You can see my nails and even the shape of my knuckles. Excited to show my parents, they’re response was “Creepy”. And from my dogs facial expression she was quite confused. For the record my fingers aren’t crooked.

Est. 1993 I am a senior at CSU Long Beach wrapping up my final semester. A great amount of my time is dedicated to my career at Vans. I can genuinely say I love the company I work for and everything they represent. I'm a dog person. Cats are overrated, although I have three felines. My heart is taken by a little dachshund named Brawtney. I have two family dogs I also have a soft spot for- a German shepherd, Kekoa, and a beagle, Levi. I'm the type of person who will show up to a party and hang out with the host's dogs all night- and if anyone asks, "oh, that party was lit". I love the outdoors, and being indoors is a punishment, but adventures are no fun unless you have someone to share it with!.. So I value the people in my life greatly. I am a hula dancer of 17+years. I'm not that great in comparison to my beautiful hula sister who I share the stage with, but I love traveling and competing with them. Excited to soak up my last semester here at The Beach!
