To reintroduce the fox skull into the environment I chose to change it and tranform it from something natural to a man-made ghost and used a plaster casting process.

The casting process became quite complex because of the shape of the mould and the resources I had available. The cast itself was comprised of six parts and parts of the eye socket had to be filled.
I am not happy with the result and think I should have used the rapid prototype printer for this piece also. Regardless of the use of release spray on the mould, the cast stuck fast to the mould and had the be broken off, the remaining plaster is proving very difficult to remove and as such it is  difficult to see the end result until I’ve managed to soak all the paster off with boiling water and a chisel.
