... and a new addiction!
A few weeks ago during a day out at my favourite National Trust House. I met a lovely lady making sculptures in the Gallery. When she said we could attend a workshop and create a sculpture of our own, I realised what my Dad would be getting for Father's Day!
So at the weekend Dad and I went along to a workshop, got messy, ate a lovely lunch and created our own sculptures.
|I wish I knew how to erase "rugby arms!"|

My nearly finished sculpture, she's got lots of drying to do yet.
Drying out on a windowsill at home.
The sculptures are made using fabric and resin. You start by making a wire skeleton, adding muscle and shape using metal foil, then finally wrapping and "dressing" your sculpture. I choose lots of lacy bits for mine. The resin is completely waterproof and weatherproof once dry. Once mine has dried completely I'll give her another coat of resin, then she'll dry a lovely bronze colour. She's then "move house" and live in my bathroom.
Thanks for dropping by.
