movement of the body that emphasizes an idea or attitude Gesture
Base The lowest and supporting part of a sculpture
Design & Build a 3D figure Create your own supernatural being. It should represent YOU somehow. –It DOES NOT have to be human in shape. But if it is, now you have a better idea about proportion. –It can have 2 legs or 7 legs! Sketch out designs Wire ‘armature’. Build up with foil, paper and then cover with plaster wrap with a final layer of papier mache You are responsible for making your figure stand (create a base or make sure it balances!)
the inside support system of a structure Armature
Plaster Wrap Fabric that has been infused with plaster
a glue mixture that uses newspaper, wheat paste (flour) and water Papier Mache
After it’s built Embellish and paint your sculptures –Details, textures and painted surfaces are very important and shouldn’t be neglected or rushed through.
Getting your figure to stand will be challenging but there are many ways to do this –Simple balance (more than 2 legs can help!) –Foil/Cardboard Bring in materials to embellish your figure with This project will take about 3 weeks to complete.
