Ist es ein Gipsverband?
In a certain way, yes, it was. These dear ladies are museum preparators.
Here they start the molding process for making a "tree" for the next exhibition in Übersee-Museum.
To make a cast, they put, I think it was latex, around the tree trunk to make a mold which has the tree trunk surface impressed therein. The molding material was applied in two parts, one on either side. After the mold has hardened, they tried to peel it off the tree.
After that the mold will be put together and filled with plaster or something like that.
I'll show the "tree" when it's ready. In October!
Good. I'm looking forward to it already! :)
Das ist sehr interessant!
Oh oh. With the museum ladies searching diligently for realism is one in danger of being cast when dozing on a bench or moving too slow?
Hmmm. Horror. Puts a new possibility in those bronze figures one sees on benches in cities around the world: those too slow to escape bronzing!
