How to get a doctor thoroughly plastered - in three easy stages

Stage 1: York artist Karri Furre covers the face of Paul Scarrow, a GP from Retford, in Nottinghamshire, with moulding materials as he prepares to have his whole body used to create a life-size glass-fibre model.

Stage 2: The plaster cast of his faced is removed. It will be fitted with glass eyes and a wig before going on display in a Victorian operating theatre at the new pounds 5m Thackray Museum in Leeds.

Stage 3: Ms Furre releases the fibre-glass and plaster cast of Dr Scarrow, who won his modelling session in the BBC's Children in Need auction last year. The Scarrow family bid pounds 2,650 for the privilege. Photographs: Steve Forrest
