Reuse plastic mannequin forms to cast plaster 'canvas'

This one was cast in plaster stripping inside the back of an upper manneqin half. Once the form was removed, the surface of the casting was coated with several layers of gesso. The patterns were created first with acrylic washes, then pencil crayon and water colour pencils, gold and silver pen, and oil pastels. When finished it was sprayed with a matt varnish.
