The Process Of Making A Statue
At first, warm water is taken in a container. Then plaster of paris is poured into warm water and the mixture is prepared. The mixture should not be made very dense. After this, a cast of statue is made with wood. The cast made with wood is a crafty work of art. Then the mixture in the container is poured in the cast carefully and the cast is left in a suitable humid atmosphere in a room to harden it. When the cast is finally found hard, the cast is carefully removed using proper tools. Then the statue is taken out and it is coloured. In this way, a statue is made ready to display.
