Create elegant botanical plaster reliefs and discover the ancient sculptural technique of plaster casting. Also known as ‘bas-relief’ or ‘low relief,’ plaster casting has been used since antiquity in many forms, for both artistic and academic endeavors. “The raised effect is achieved by carving or impressing your subject into soft clay, and then filling the vacancy left with liquid plaster,” explains Liz Wagner, our teacher, and Creative Lead for The Crafter’s Box.
