Step One....Setting up the Plaster on the Burlap...
This is the same process that you used for Project One.
Be sure and remeasure for the new size canvas you are using(11"x14" or larger).
Use respiratory protection if you are sensitive to the dust.
You will need to Double the amount of plaster you are using.( you will have a little left over...Don't try to reuse.
Now that you have finished with the preparation of the burlap it will need to sit overnight or until it is completely dry. You will be pulling the plaster substrate off of the burlap during your next step. ***NOTE*** This plaster substrate can remain on the drying board for a number of months iif necessary. Letting it sit, Will Not affect its use during the next step.
Step Two.....Cutting and Cracking the Plaster Substrate
Step Three.....Highlighting The Cracks in the Plaster Substrate
