Re: The Fatal Blow
What I meant by synthetic plaster is Forton modified gypsum. The liquid is soluble in water but it looks like radioactive milk and dries hard by itself. It is synthetic and called Forton VF 812 liquid. The plaster produced is extremely hard and resistant to the elements. All of the pieces that I have been showing on WC have all been made with this material. The casting plaster is reinforced with small fibers. Powdered metals and marble dust can be mixed with it and used to cast. Ball Consulting, Ltd is the company that I buy it from and they have a website and you can write them and request a catalog. I have been using this material for years.
Molding should be easy. I will mold 1/2 the arms with the sword separately.
