List of Castees and Failures

Note about my numbering system and mold malfunctions:

The 5-digit serial number next to a castee's name denotes the number of a plaster casting attempt. Not all attempts result in a plaster cast. Sometimes I screw up the mold, or it sets at a moment when the subject isn't at his prettiest. In that case the process has to be repeated. Whether or not a cast gets made, I document each "happening" and assign it a serial number in my casting journal.

Some who got the shaft from a fucked-up mold have never returned to do it again. (See BOYS I'VE TRIED TO CAST.) It's never too late for those of you on that list to make your mark in my collection. I encourage anyone whose mission into Plaster eternity was aborted, to please come back for a re-launch. And I apologize for any inconvenience.

P.S.: There has never been a mold malfunction with breast casts. The Curse of the Caster only seems to apply to penises.
