until you look closely ti is quite hard to tell the difference between the plaster original and the plastic clone. This is really exciting! The print has managed to capture a lot of detail! This tells me that a viewer would be able to hopefully respond to the copy in the same way they would the original. I am interested in now uploading the 3D map to make my sculpture available to a wider audience.
this is based on a drawing. I wanted to explore spherical forms with the smiling faces. In doing so I seem to have made something like a moon type character? I am quite interested in seeing how this terns out. I want this piece to be particularly smooth and regular, i think this piece would be interesting in digital or 3D printed form.
I didn’t a line this very well but i still like the idea. I am going to see if i can make it any more polished looking. I think I wnat to develop this idea into an upside down – right way up version of this head. ( see October drawings)
This first mold is made from silicon and is of the normal/ slight smile face
This mold is made from latex with a plaster armature. This was my first time using latex and although it was a bit of a slow process it is a lot cheaper and has worked just as well as silicon so I’m inclined to continue using it.
