Does anyone have (successful) experience of taking plaster casts of bell inscriptions. I have been having a few attempts but wondered if anyone had hints and tips for success. I have been using a version of Plasticine and a Plaster of Paris modeling plaster. Two problems seem to occur - the first is me not pressing the Plasticine well enough onto the inscription and that is easily rectified - push a bit more! The second is getting air bubbles in the plaster. I have tried dibbling around with a small paintbrush as I pour the plaster but I still get little bubbles on the inscription which spoil the finished result.
