Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] another rod puppet - teddy bear


Thanks, Daniel:

I have been asked to make a custom marionette 24". 
The head is smaller than I am currently used to making. So I thought I'd go 
back to   my 'old' ways of many years ago and sculpt the head in plasticene, 
cast it in plaster and finish it up as I am used to.

So my question is: Can one cast Aves Epoxy   Sculpt into a plaster mold? If 
so, what does one use as a release agent, and where might one find this 
material.....?

I am grateful for your response and for the information.
Thanks and Best,
Fred
