Any help in terms of how I would go about this (from making the mould, through to making the marbgle dust casting would be greatly appreciated).
Type 'marble dust' in the search box to view this subject in older forum posts. Then let us know if it helped.

I took a casting from a woman who was 8 months
pregnant. It was incredibly messy and a good laugh
(she was luckily very easy going).
We encountered however serious problems with plaster sticking to body hair. We did liberally rub vaseline
all over her torso paying particular attention to the
very hairy bits but ofcourse she had body hair all over
and found it really rather painful. As the plaster sets
it contracts and therefore tugs the hairs as it retreats.
Be very careful She also found the plster quite weighty
and had to support her stomach with her hands as it set.
You need to have read up widely on the subject before
going ahead as you don't want your subject to panic and
- go into premature labour!!
