Paper Drained of Water

Molds are Ready

This process works for whatever size or shape of object you want, but right now we're concentrating on getting a bunch of bricks made.  I've also made a few small domes and fake rocks as well so far.  I've been experimenting with mixtures / recipes and different types of armatures for sculpture and building as well.
