Various containers from sweet, cake or food packaging showed interesting markings and configurations. I was surprised by the variety and effects they showed.
Adding scrim to the plaster gives an organic feel which makes it softer and warmer in contrast to the coldness of the plaster
plaster poured into wax wasn’t very inspiring.
Coins embedded into the plaster produced a clean sample and gave me further ideas of making a large scale torso covered in coins.
I was pleased with the composition of this but the wood did not release to create the hole I had envisaged, however it still worked well.
The cake tray produced a few samples which could stacked into a tower. The lines are quite defined, so add an extra dimensional quality.
By adding nail varnish, the surface of the plaster was broken and has an almost marbled effect. I had tried coloured paint, but it was very muted and spoilt the overall effect.
