PREPARING TO CREATE A SCULPTURE

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,Stropor 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 may be marble 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.

Diogenes (/dˈɒɪnz/ dy-OJ-in-eezAncient GreekΔιογένηςromanizedDiogénēs [di.oɡénɛːs]), also known as Diogenes the Cynic (Διογένης ὁ ΚυνικόςDiogénēs ho Kynikós), was a Greek philosopher and one of the founders of Cynic philosophy. He was born in Sinope, an Ionian colony on the Black Sea coast of Anatolia (Asia Minor[2]) in 412 or 404 BC and died at Corinth in 323 BC.[3]

Diogenes was a controversial figure. He was the son of a mintmaster and was banished from Sinope for debasement of currency.[2] After being exiled, he moved to Athens and criticized many cultural conventions of the city. He modeled himself on the example of Heracles, and believed that virtue was better revealed in action than in theory. He used his simple lifestyle and behavior to criticize the social values and institutions of what he saw as a corrupt, confused society. He had a reputation for sleeping and eating wherever he chose in a highly non-traditional fashion, and took to toughening himself against nature. He declared himself a cosmopolitan and a citizen of the world rather than claiming allegiance to just one place. There are many tales about his dogging Antisthenes‘ footsteps and becoming his “faithful hound”.[4]

Diogenes made a virtue of poverty. He begged for a living and often slept in a large ceramic jar, or pithos, in the marketplace.[5] He became notorious for his philosophical stunts, such as carrying a lamp during the day, claiming to be looking for a man (often rendered in English as “looking for an honest man”). He criticized Plato, disputed his interpretation of Socrates, and sabotaged his lectures, sometimes distracting listeners by bringing food and eating during the discussions. Diogenes was also noted for having mocked Alexander the Great, both in public and to his face when he visited Corinth in 336 BC.[6][7][8]

Diogenes was captured by pirates and sold into slavery, eventually settling in Corinth. There he passed his philosophy of Cynicism to Crates, who taught it to Zeno of Citium, who fashioned it into the school of Stoicism, one of the most enduring schools of Greek philosophy. No writings of Diogenes survive but there are some details of his life from anecdotes (chreia), especially from Diogenes Laërtius‘ book Lives and Opinions of Eminent Philosophers and some other sources.[9]
