I have long sought to make things by using impressions of stuff I own or create myself.
Here is what I used,and they are simple things. Plaster or Paris, a Britains toy figure, an icing sugar cake mould, and Lego Bricks!
The PEGASUS silicon mould cost £1.99 Free Post from China. I had to wait a couple of weeks for it to arrive,but that is OK,and this idea of how to use it embedded in stone gradually yesterday began to materialise. Many of you will know that I make my own props for story telling of rather tall tales,using simple toys,and my camera.
Above is PEGASUS.
Also shown is part of the making a part of my own stone pathway for the ASTERIX VILLAGE!
As I am no sculptor I use whatever I can find for other purposes.
The Apex was formed by using LEGO BRICKS.
The wet plaster was poured in around the main feature, not perfect on this 3,000 year artefact from my over leap-frogging, fancied mind for antiquity!
While the plaster was hard I brushed on lots of cold water,as I have found it helps harden it even more. I also added shadow to this camera shot,because it defines the detail well.
The cast up impression of the Greek toy Griffin Shield adds balance to the Apex Shape,and will help direct eyes on the centre featured in stone. Although not finished I thought to show my sweet tooth pathway rather than an end result.
I will show more later as more work falls into place leading to completion.
Thank you for viewing. BB
