This week the fifth graders continued work on their spectacular sport trophies. The wire and foil figures are now posed and wrapped with plaster wrap. Almost all have been stapled to wooden bases. Our fifth graders have experience working with plaster (see this post and this post) so almost all finished wrapping the figures during our 40 minute class.
Don’t you love the poses and accessories?
Here’s a ‘wrap up’ (get it?) of all the steps so far:
NOTE: I used three basic supplies for these sport sculptures:
- Plaster wrap
- Pre-cut floral wire (aka stem wire)
- Pre-cut aluminum foil
