Wk2 – Plaster Casting – Carlos Nava

This has been one of the funnest activities I have done since I’ve been here at CSULB. Although the idea was to meet up with the rest of the class on Thursday, a friend and I could not make it on time and led us to a very unusual way to do the art experience. We did make it to the beach, even though there was no one there anymore, we decided to take some sand home and do it ourselves. So what we did was we used the bucket that was supposed to be used for the mixture of the water and plaster to take the sand home. Once we were home, we basically molded our hand in the sand as if we were at the beach. It actually worked, and I have to say our hands came out pretty legit. In all honestly, I have never done anything like this and I was so anxious as to how our molds would come out. When it come to applying this activity to life, the only thing that comes to mind is having a good time with your friends. Other than that, this art experience has been a good one.
