Response to Statue
Yes, I would prefer these methods myself again for the making of the base.
In fact it works the same as you propose, but instead of resin you use ceramic plaster. The advantage is that it is much easier to add additional detail by carving after the plaster is dry (Thus the molds can be more simple and crudely made, thus quicker, you can clean upo the plaster casting easily), and also texturing will be easier. And also some damage is easy and quick to recreate. Resin is also quite expensive... For the column you can use some plastic/PVC pipe and use this as your mold. After the plaster has set, cut it open at two side and you can remove it easily.
HTH, and have fun!
