Wait... he had a friend in art school who did this?

And they didn't realize goatee + plaster = pain and injury?

Someone wasn't paying attention in class!

Oh, and on a helpful note, tell him he's gotta sacrifice that goatee unless he wants a huge copay from the hospital. Besides, all they're going to do is shave that sucker off, so he might as well do it at home and save himself the assrape.

can you work a straight razor or hobby knife (well he should do this) carefully between it and the skin to shave the hair?

I don't think it's keeping the facial hair. I also seem to recall when I did plaster casting that I had to be clean shaven to do it

Whatever the solution, if it involves pain, you must video tape it. Tell him its a white trash waxing kit and just to pull the drat thing off.

How long's the hair underneath? If it's all short and stubbly like what you've uncovered, ripping it off might be best. If it's much longer, and you've been clipping as you go, your friend might be in for some pain.

There might be some form of mild acid that dissolves the plaster that won't eat his face, isn't it primarily some form of calcium?

yeah with a straight razor and an electric one, the buzzer cut some skin chunks out which is why hes using pliers now. hes only giving permission to rip it off in one piece if he stops breathing out of his nose

Acetone, perhaps? Of course, I've never intentionally poured acetone all over my face before...

I'd try ethanol then acetone before resorting to more drastic measures...

Every time he says something, ask him "what" in an increasingly loud voice, then tell him that you can't hear him and that he should wait a second, you're going to just rip it off quick.

Try warm water and vinegar.
Failing that, pull on it as much as possibly (he has to suck it up, and you owe him) use a small hair clipper and gently and slowly cut away the goatee from the plaster. When you cant reach any more goatee hair, try to break off some plaster.

Good luck.

Also: haha that is hilarious!

Again, shave the sucker. If you have any small hair-trimming scissors, use that. Barring that, a razor blade would work only if the plaster is stuck on hair and not skin; otherwise, you're in for a shitload of blood and pain.

Oh, and while you're at it, he's got a zit on his left cheek. Grab that sucker too.

Some of these are really funny ideas, but would obviously be quite painful for your unfortunate buddy. The best serious answer is to go the hospital.

But do this before you go:

Googling turned up:

"A hot-water bottle held against a porous plaster will assist in
quickly removing it from the skin."

No mention of what you do if a goatee is involved, but this may make it easier to remove....slightly.

Rubbing alcohol, Vaseline and patience. Failing that, nair.

Edit: Rub Vaseline around the edges of his skin, so moving it'll be a little less painful. Soak a rag with rubbing alcohol and dab at the edges, trying to get it to soak under. Use those pliers CAREFULLY to nip away any plaster that lifts away from his skin.

I agree with this. He was stupid enough to put plaster mold on his face while he still has facial hair, and I don't see why we shouldn't get a laugh out of it.

On a side note, you're either going to have to spen a poo poo load of time trying to break/crush it off, or shave him.

Why don't you try boiling water and having him sit over the steam?
Maybe come in contact plaster-first with the boiling water if you're careful enough?

What you really need to do is get the plaster warmer and have it expand so it can become moist again. At that point you might want to try acetone/nailpolish remover, if chipping away at the moist plaster doesn't work.

You could also make a really hot moist rag in the oven and try it that way.

Have you tried working some liquid lube around it? Or even getting some conditioner in there to soak into the hairs? Using a small hammer with a thin stiff piece of something to protect his face? Nair? Where is the art major in all this? Why not call his professor to see if he has any tips or hints.

Seconding the draw a smile on it and post pics.
