Processing process of sculptures

 

Polyester resin castings cure very hard. They cure hard enough that you can use a buffing wheel and compound to polish polyester resin castings.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.

Who is Kafka?

Franz Kafka (3 July 1883 – 3 June 1924) was a German-speaking Bohemian novelist and short-story writer, widely regarded as one of the major figures of 20th-century literature. His work fuses elements of realism and the fantastic. It typically features isolated protagonists facing bizarre or surrealistic predicaments and incomprehensible socio-bureaucratic powers. It has been interpreted as exploring themes of alienation, existential anxiety, guilt, and absurdity. His best known works include “Die Verwandlung” (“The Metamorphosis”), Der Process (The Trial), and Das Schloss (The Castle). The term Kafkaesque has entered the English language to describe situations like those found in his writing.

Kafka was born into a middle-class German-Jewish family in Prague, the capital of the Kingdom of Bohemia, then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, today the capital of the Czech Republic. He trained as a lawyer and after completing his legal education was employed full-time by an insurance company, forcing him to relegate writing to his spare time. Over the course of his life, Kafka wrote hundreds of letters to family and close friends, including his father, with whom he had a strained and formal relationship. He became engaged to several women but never married. He died in 1924 at the age of 40 from tuberculosis.

Few of Kafka’s works were published during his lifetime: the story collections Betrachtung (Contemplation) and Ein Landarzt (A Country Doctor), and individual stories (such as “Die Verwandlung“) were published in literary magazines but received little public attention. In his will, Kafka instructed his executor and friend Max Brod to destroy his unfinished works, including his novels Der ProzessDas Schloss and Der Verschollene (translated as both Amerika and The Man Who Disappeared), but Brod ignored these instructions. His work has influenced a vast range of writers, critics, artists, and philosophers during the 20th and 21st

About Artifacts inspiration source

The inspiration for these works was interpreted through the metaphors, teachings and lives of famous philosophers. In fact, I have integrated and ossified the sentences that will leave an impression in every reader’s mind with my own art and sculpture world. From my point of view of art, it will not be the first, and will not be the last, it is like a written poem from my soul.

Sculpture to me, means creating a formation by using literatüre and music many times. This is the way I define myself as an artist.

Sculpture also mean to me, juıst like drawing a fine line in geometry and reaching a conclusion, when you draw a line in geometry, a problem is solved, a conclusion is drawn. Just as when when words and sentences are put together in Geometry and Literature,  a composition is written, such is Sculpture to me. Different materials can be used to make art, sometimes even a piece of scrap can be a complementary element to an artifact. A thread can be made from a string, ceramic, porcelain from a clay, or epoxy, polyester, glass can find life, in art. A sadekar can make magnificent bone combs, a turtle shell spoon or bowl. Compared to other components, Polyester is relatively faster, easier and less demanding on equipment, and it is  easy to level. It has no complications like glass material. This does not however mean that, of course, Polyester sculptures can be re-molded and technically transformed into glass sculptures.
