Plaster carving

I had this wonderfull idea that i could start sculpting marble.. Well a nice block of carrara statuario costs like 2000 spacebucks and so i decided i start with something more cheaper, because i have never sculpted before.
Plaster is super easy to mix and it hardens really fast.
Like in these two, the mold was a bucket and the plaster set like within 2 hours.
I also got a couple of nice claw chisels to feel like Michelangelo himself.
Actually the fine sculpting is made with a flat screwdriver in the need of a better tool. :)

Here is the first attempt. Its supposed to be an old guy with the mustache.
