I have a very detailed mold that i would like to plaster cast but not sure where to start? Answered

The mold is of a clay head and there are petals all around the neck.  There are small slits around the petals also.  Will i be able to plaster cast this or is it too complicated.

Art supply stores sell a kind of LATEX PAINT that you just paint the object you want to mold.  Then when it dries, paint another coat.  then a couple more coats until you get the latex thick enough.When it is fully dry, just peel off the latex skin. You may need to build a supporting structure for the latex skin/mold before using it as a mold.  then, just fill it with plaster and let it dry.   Just peel it off when dry.
