Title

Blank with Beaded Edge, [Plaster]

Description

Plaster blank with beaded edge.
Plaster blanks could be used several times for different sculptures.

This round plaster blank with inset beading on the edge was used for sculpting at least three sculpture reliefs. The ghost images visible on the surface indicate: The Spirit of Detroit for the Annual Convention of the Numismatic Association, a portrait of Herbert E. Pederson, MD, and Flying Wild Geese. The discoloration is due to shellac used to seal the plaster. Graphite guide lines are visible on the surface. The beading used around the edge is similar to ball chain.
