I managed to fit in an on-line course last year by the very talented Stephanie Lee www.stephanielee.typepad.com. She is amazing. I had never worked with plaster before, but it is so much fun. It can get a bit messy, but it was nice to work that way for a change. This is my first piece. It involves carving into the plaster once it was dry and then adding colour. Stephanie has so many different ways of working with the plaster that I have yet to try. The on-line course isn't currently happening, but she has an E-book worth getting, showing all her techniques.
