Casting

Bought a Chinese Checkers set last night - the current plan is to put marbles in the set to form the basic chassis areas, then pour plaster on it to create a cast usable as a chassis board.

Only some minor problems - the marbles stick up too much (aren't half covered), and I need to build a wall around the board to contain the plaster. I was going to do it in latex instead - but the bottle I bought a while ago is now not really a liquid anymore... It's kinda plastic blancmange now, and I had to toss it out.

So might cover the marbles with gladwrap first as a buffer to keep their convexness from being too convex.
