Subject: [Puptcrit] Can you make a plaster of paris mold directly from

I am working on a project where I need to make 4 duplicates of the same 
head...I am very short on time and need to crank them out asap...I 
would like to make a mold to make my life easier.  Can I lather up some 
vaseline on the sculpted clay and do a plaster of paris negative mold 
in a shoe box with the sculped head in two halved parts? Then I could 
use celluclay or some such material to push into the negative mold of 
the head...? Or do I need do a plaster bandage strip cover on the 
sculpture and then make a positive mold, like I do when making masks?  
It's a small head, so I fear it would lose detail this way...
Any info is appreciated.
