Despair of Cyclop-009
PREPARING TO CREATE A SCULPTURE
Processing process of sculptures
In order to make polyester casting, you first need to have a main model in your hand. It may be a model you have printed on a 3D printer or it may be a figure you have made yourself from clay.
To get the mold for this model, you need to have some idea about the molding techniques, otherwise you may not be able to get your model out of the plaster mold properly.
In the image above, you see the clay model and the finished polyester model.
After the model is surrounded by cardboard, wood or a hard object, we pour the papier-mâché plaster, which we prepared according to the dimensions of the model, into the mold.
We wait 1-2 days for the plaster to set. Although there is no recipe, because room temperature, seasons affect the preparation of the polyester.
We mix it by adding Cobalt, MEK (Methyl Ethyl Ketone) and Talcum Powder into the polyester resin. The polyester will start to heat up after a while and will be prepared within 48 hours at the latest.
An expected view is a light gray appearance which is normal. After the sticky feeling on the model is gone we prime it with an air gun, if we do not apply this procedure it burns the polyester on synthetic paints and your effort will be wasted. The primer dries in 15-20 minutes and you can paint your model as you wish with acrylic paint.
This Sculptures Thema was also Despair but This model has diffrences between hand model.I inspired this Figure by ‘Alain De Bottons’ novel.When I read his book I felt this Cyclops fear feelings.
