Having worked for a fibreglass mouldings company during the summer has given me the knowledge for an idea to create large water droplet like forms using resin, but more specifically clear casting resin.
Thinking about elements to put in the ‘black room’ I thought about a suspended lattice of clear resin. Attempting to create a maquette using a hot glue gun on celephane, but didn’t really work because I couldn’t remove it from the celephane! However, got some very interesting photos.
There are various types of resin available such as polyurethane, epoxy and vinylester to mention a few. I have decided on a polyester version and will be trialling a silicone rubber compound to create the mould.
