02/15/2011 casting resin mold and a sketch

The first part of my project is making a brooch.. i'm working on many many pieces thou just is case. Using enameled copper, graphite pencil for drwaing, and hand made plastic pomegranates!
(I already sized this pictures, but why turned out so small? i don't get the technique system here.) (for better view, click the image = - =)
Here are the pictures of making a pomegranates mold, but this one didn'd go well.
The wire that I attatched to pomegranates was so small and made a narrow pathway which is too narrow to let the resin go inside the room, so it made just poor redish chunks..
not a pomegranates shape..
And then I made the second mold, there's no pathway, the opening is the edge of the pomegranates! I hope the wider opening will make better result!
And I made these cute fake pomegranates!
I'm so happy that I got good color combination to make these looks like real one.

3-4 drops red color and a little of blue !

The last picture shows real pomegranate (in middle of the pic) and fake one.
they don't look that different!

2011 Spring, start a new project, "Year of The Celebration"

As a senior student, I am currently working on my own website. Hope to post every process and works of the project on my website soon. Before that, I decided to use here,, as the digital sketchbook.

This semester is my last one of the curriculum according to take bachelor's degree, so I'm working on senior project, and having the show on May.

The ideas of my works are from the feeling that I finally graduating of the school this year, and this feeling is not only just hapiness that I finish the school, but also about the feeling of expectancy that I will take a first step of my life trip.

Also I use images of rabbits in my drawing, and this is from the zodiac of this year, 2011.
