NEW Finish Your Sculpture – The Last Steps
June 14, 2014 - June 15, 2014
Why is finishing important? You have finished the carving, so how can you take it to the next level by personalizing your sculpture through various different finishing techniques. How can natural and manmade textural surfaces be used to convey meaning? We will experiment with a range of polishing techniques and explore different types of mark making, creating patterns and controlling basic sculpture carving tools like chisel, points, diamond saws, drills, etc. Other surface treatments may include paints and pigments, gold and metal leafing, combining foreign materials or inlaying the surfaces. Participants will also create textures and designs through sandblast etch technology. Please feel free to bring any works in progress, slides to share and a good respirator.
