Abstract Sculpture

Last week we created the mould and cast our sculptures in polyester resin. Polyester is a very light weight medium to cast in but is quite messy. We had to work outdoors as the chemicals have a really pungent smell which is quite unbearable. But the final outcome is so beautiful and the resin used in the casting gives an image of old copper sculptures...
Here are some work in progress pictures of the mould and the casting.
