Hand cast plate with artifact cracks.

Hand cast plate with artifact cracks.
This plate was made using the same method as the one in the previous post. Fossil branch hand cast plate. , but this time, instead of using branches, I used plastecine to form the negative impressions of the cracks befor pouring the plaster mixture. I migh mention, that I do not use pure plaste of paris, but mid it in with som paper pulp. The same kind of pulp you would use to make handmade paper.
After painting the plate with a faux antique bronze finish, I added some gold gilding to parts of the cracks to give a more rich effect.
