Hi! My name is Kaitlin, and this is my plaster project in progress with Alicia. We started our 3D Art projects and we were given an option of 4 medias to work with; plaster, trash, clay and wire. I chose plaster, and found out I had a similar idea to Alicia. Our original idea was to fill balloons with plaster, and mold the balloons into different shapes, so when we take off the balloon we are left with a plaster sculpture in the shape of the molded balloon. We got our inspiration from this website: http://www.firstpalette.com/Craft_themes/Colors/plasterfreeformsculpture/plasterfreeformsculpture.html
There were some complications, and it didn’t work out because the balloons didn’t mold as easily as we originally thought. So, what we decided to do was to make a scene out of un-molded balloons filled with plaster. We plan to paint them a variety of colors, and draw faces on them to make them look like adorable plaster creatures. We are almost done our project, we just need to put them on a base. Here’s a picture of the plaster eggs look like out of the balloon mold, and after they were painted and drawn on. If you any suggestions for us, feel free to comment - we’d really appreciate some feedback!
Our finished project:
