Execution of Socrates
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 This casting was gorgeous. I took some sandpaper to the bottom and smoothed off the Surface Than 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.
Who is Socrates?
Socrates was a Greek philosopher from Athens who is credited as one of the founders of Western philosophy, and as being the first moral philosopher of the Western ethical tradition of thought. An enigmatic figure, he authored no texts, and is known chiefly through the accounts of classical writers composing after his lifetime, particularly his students Plato and Xenophon.
Other sources include the contemporaneous Antisthenes, Aristippus, and Aeschines of Sphettos. Aristophanes, a playwright, is the main contemporary author to have written plays mentioning Socrates during Socrates’ lifetime, though a fragment of Ion of Chios’ Travel Journal provides important information about Socrates’ youth.
Plato’s dialogues are among the most comprehensive accounts of Socrates to survive from antiquity, from which Socrates has become renowned for his contributions to the fields of ethics and epistemology. It is this Platonic Socrates who lends his name to the concepts of Socratic irony and the Socratic method, or elenchus. However, questions remain regarding the distinction between the real-life Socrates and Plato’s portrayal of Socrates in his dialogues
Socrates exerted a strong influence on philosophers in later antiquity and in the modern era. Depictions of Socrates in art, literature and popular culture have made him one of the most widely known figures in the Western philosophical tradition.
