This is a plaster cast of my foot I made for my Space and Materiality class. For the mold I used Accu-Cast 570 alginate, and for the cast I used 5 pounds of Hydrocal statuary plaster. This work is obviously inspired by Roman copies of ancient Greek statues, although unlike the original marbles, mine will remain uncolored like the museum works we admire today.
