At the Peter Rose workshop in Rock Hill a couple weekends ago, Peter shared his tools for making molds. He took four pieces of wood, four c-clamps and viola any size you needed was available. So I stopped at Home depot today to get the items. The salespeople were very helpful too. One salesperson, Sharma, that I asked where Plaster of Paris was located and c-clamps, proceeded to help me.
She grabbed a cart, loaded the plaster in it, buckets and shopped with me. I normally am not so open to this kind of help at the store- (mostly because I want the time to shop and consider and pick up loose ends--and I feel pressured if a salesperson is with me, like I have to be more decisive and quick so not to waste their time), but I guess times have changed, because I was ok with it. And functionally, carrying 25 pounds of plaster, a couple 5 gallon buckets, c-clamps and wood, really wasn't possible. And pushing a cart and my wheelchair...not that functional either -possible of course! And don't try solving this with some cart thing that I attach to my chair...no thanks!!
