Plaster

Plaster is a mixture of heat treated and powdered gypsum. It is mixed with water to make a solid sculpture, cast in a mold, carved, modeled and attached to other materials. Artists have used plaster for working models and finished artwork for centuries.

Clay

Clay is earth which is made when rocks weather and finally decompose. It takes a long time for water to carry pieces of earth, creating muck. The muck is collected, cleaned, prepared by removing rocks, and refined by adding sand to make clay.

Intaglio

Intaglio is a printing technique where a design is created by incising beneath the surface of stone or metal plates. Only the depressions are inked and the plate surface is wiped clean. An etching press transfers the ink to the paper.
