I loved your clay sculptures.    What material are you using to make the 
molds of the actors faces? I am just wondering because I have used alginate and 
moulage in the past and want to know what others prefer, and where to get more.  
 I have to do masks for a production in a few weeks.

As for your question about sealing the plaster, in thepast i have used a thin 
layer of vaseline, or nothing at all. If you rae not using vaseline, it helps 
if the plaster is somewhat wet (wet surface before sculpting) so that the oil 
based plastalina resists.
