Body Cast

 This will definitely wake you up in the morning! South Florida artist Paul Phillips visited the Design215 studio to do this awesome casting of my torso.

 Before the plaster application began, I was provided with a vat of petroleum jelly and instructed to apply it to my pubic hair. I dipped a finger in the container and sheepishly smeared the gunk on. Paul warned me I should use more... like, a lot more... so I gave it another light going over, thinking of nothing but how difficult it would be to get the slimy stuff off later. Boy, was that a mistake. I should have applied that shit with a spatula, or maybe just bathed in it. I was enjoying the tingly sensation of the cast coming off until suddenly there was a velcro sound followed immediately by intense searing pain in my lady bits. I had to squeeze an arm under the cast and attempt to pull myself off the plaster bit by bit. I eventually broke free, but I think Paul might have taken some of me home with him. Sorry, Paul, that's eew.

Below is a picture of an unfinished piece fresh out of the mold. I can't wait to see what it looks like when it's all done! This was such a fun project to be a part of, definitely something out of the ordinary for me!

  1. It does looks like a very cool experience, even with the painful part ^_^. I have worked before with those kind of materials, but never before on a hair covered part. Good to know about it LOL.
    Wonderful work here, for both the artist and the model, congrats !!! Hope to see the finished work !!
