This week Spectrum gets to go to a new home!
Here are some collected photos from behind the scenes.
The color change flakes on top of the black paint really sparkle in person! This was my first time experimenting with it, and I’m looking forward to trying out more unusual pigments/ paints.
Documenting the Dunny
When photographing tiny art, I use a large piece of card stock as the background and set up a few lamps to balance out the lighting. I try to photograph things right after I finish them, otherwise it’s hard to stay on top of it.
Putting together the pieces
I usually work on more complex sculptures like this in separate pieces to start with. I keep them separate as long as possible so that the painting/ finishing process is easier. It’s always satisfying to get to the last step, when I can finally see the sculpture as a finished whole.
