She’s a model and she’s looking… ok, considering.

cracking on, cracking on… have ditched the idea of the plaster-soaked fabric as although it’s do-able it’s not really feasible  (or should that be the other way round? probably should.) So, in collusion with 3D John i’m using mod-roc and a painted fabric skirt. theoretically.    this was just a dry run with the fabric i was considering. I knew…

‘ello muto…

right, effectively my final piece is due…. (drumroll…) wednesday. Ha ha ha ha ha ha haaaaaaaaaaaa. I’ve been cracking on with SkinFlick, which will be presented in a mutoscope (a.k.a a ‘What the Butler Saw’ machine). This is what they’re supposed to look like: So far, this is mine; the plan is to soak fabric…

in reality, i only have a couple of weeks til i need my finished piece done…. arrrggggh. I was going through the proposal i did with one of the tutors today, and i’ve decided to forget the witch from the boiling sea section…. while i’ve done a lot of work on it the concept doesn’t…

beady-I

Been working on the chiton a bit more… all the hemming is now done, so i’m starting to add the red beads;       given that i’m calling the whole piece ‘the witch from the boiling sea’ as a nod the origins of the word eczema, i’m using separated embroidery thread  and knotting it on the wrong side…

resuming my modeling career

‘ey up, Well, yesterday I discussed the models I was making, and to be honest, they turned out ok. Slight masses of pva getting stuck to the tubes i was using as supports, but other than that a reasonably successful experiment – I also tried a bamboo/gutter mesh tripod, pics follow…        I also did…

Site Specific Sculpture… deadline swiftly approaching

Well, I’m not going to be able to get what i wanted done for my assessment. I can plan it, cost it an hopefully get a 3d version of it done but the actual piece is too ambitious… and now i’ve stopped stamping my little feet and am working on the idea more constructively. Firstly, I’ve been…
