 Genesis of an idea

 

  At Full Stretch #1 

The Idea

 

Armiture 

 

Cellulose Cement raw state

 

 

#1 Raw Bronze paint

 

#1 Patinated

 

 

#1 Rear view

This work won first prize at the Brunswick Art Expo 2008 and was sold at that event.

 

"At Full Stretch #2" 

On the left is the third stage of the cellulose-cement modelling showing the rear excavated back to the newsprint core. The core was shredded and the loose paper fixed and sealed with shellac.

 On the right is the final layer of cellulose-cement before detail was added and the surface sanded back. The work was then painted with several layers of bronze paint before being lightly patinated.
