What were you doing at 3am?

I was surfacing from a trance where in I sculpted this Dali mask. I got off of work at 1am, and had done about half of this work, but then spurned on by frustration and a touch of anger I was motivated to be productive and finish it all in one sitting... mind you I took on this project against my better judgement... I'm not getting paid enough to do fine craft work and I didn't run the manner of execution by the designer... I was just struck that this was a project I wanted to do because it looked like fun... basically even if it doesn't make it on stage I'll still be fine with that, but I love the result. Now we wait for it to dry and pray that it doesn't all fall apart...

Here is the original Salvador Dali photograph the mask is based on.

Here is the mask (drying and in progress)

Completely Dali-esque (read 'creepy'). Is it that plaster stuff you've used before? How's it drying? Need a size comparison here--how big? Looking amazing. Mom

No plastalina never dries. This is called "Sculpt-it!" and it's taking a while to dry, hopefully soon though. The silver thing is the plaster head I had from high school so the whole thing is about big enough to cover a face... now I have to figure out how to make it all actor proof and how to make it stay on a face like a mask...
