I had a great time doing the plaster casting project. First of all, it was an excuse to go to the beach, and honestly you never need an excuse to go to the beach, but I was happy to use it. Second of all, I really liked the idea of essentially working with a natural medium. Even though we are using store-bought plaster and possibly store-bought tools and equipment, the rest of the project requires your hands (or feet), some ocean water, and plenty of dry and wet sand to work with. What could be better than the act of legitimately creating something from negative space, using mostly natural ingredients? It stumped me too.
