Belly cast painting

Post by freedspirit on Mon Oct 03, 2011 11:46 pm

Hey everyone
I have been asked to paint a belly cast and I have not done this before.. I did some research into what paint to use and found that acryllics do the job,,spray paint etc...Has anyone done belly casts here and have any tips of hints that they could share.. Do I need to seal it afterwards? Do I need to prime it first? I would be grateful for any advice...Thanks a bunch. sunny

I've done belly casts. As in MADE them.
They are plaster. Sometimes, the artist who makes them does finish, smooth, seal them. Some times they are left as rough plaster bandages. You should ask how it's been finished. I can give you some hints on how to finish and smooth if you need to.
You should ask them what state it's in- you don't want to assume it's ready to pant only to find it needs more plaster and sanding.
I imagine painting one would be a breeze. You can prop it any way you want and it won't wiggle either!!\
