What does it look like to you?
Cleaning up the seams and putting together the inside flower bits.The pieces were so small that, even with a pressure pot, I was getting air bubbles. I ended up pouring with the mold open, and topping it off after strapping it together. A little more clean up than usual, but those tiny chisels get the job done easy. Check out this and more at Journey to Terra Flora this Saturday, 5-9 at Galeria Regina.
Sculpting the inside of the flower
The white clay is a hard epoxy, the brown clay is a wax based clay that never hardens and doesn’t stick to things easily. This allows me to mold and cast the parts separately.
Trying out time remapping on process videos.
I’m new to video editing, but starting to have fun with it. The learning never stops!
Brushing a darker tone into the details and rubbing away the excess 🖌
I save my old T-shirt’s to cut up and reuse as paint rags. Paper towels rip and leave annoying fibers behind, but old T-shirt’s don’t.
Painting tiny spots 🌚
After I finish the details, I’ll add a holographic sparkle coat and high gloss varnish to make the colors really pop. It’s all about creating depth through layering.
