So last week we had a chance to make art for ourselves. We were shown new techniques and given new materials in order to create sculptures. It was such a great opportunity! To be back in a studio environment and given expensive materials to play with, what more could you ask for...and it didn't cost us a penny? It was like being back in college again. Good times!
The first thing we did was make Roto Casts out of paper sculptures. We folded up paper and secured it to the top of a plastic bottle, making sure it was air tight. Then we poured silicone into the sculpture and slowly rotated it in order for the it to cover all the corners and crevices of the piece.
