    Sculpture

    I'm taking a sculpture class this semester and I thought I'd post pictures of what I've done so far. Our first project is lost wax/ bronze casting. Basically you make your sculpture out of wax, then you make a ceramic shell around the wax. The wax then gets melted out of the shell so that what you have left is a cast that you pour metal into. Then you break the ceramic shell off and what you have left is a metal sculpture. I'm going to post pictures of it as I go.
    Sorry if the pictures don't show up or if they're huge. This is my first attempt at doing a post with pics.

    I've actually finished the wax part but I forgot to take pics of it at the end of last class. I'll have more to put up after I go tomorrow.

    You're so lucky... my sculpture class is all about welding and metal and wood and dangerous things that you have to work in a shop on. I hate it.


    Cool sculpture.

    Thanks everyone!

    Cheply, I would love to learn to weld. Hopefully I will get to do that this time (2nd time I've taken a sculpture class). But I do like doing the easier stuff too. It's not so complicated when you don't have a ton of tools to deal with. We will be moving on to wood next, then we get to do whatever we want so hopefully I'll get to weld if I still wan to.

    Anyways here is the final product at the wax stage. Not much different from before, just a little more mane.

    Well it's finally finished! Here is a pic of the final product. It got into the student show which I'm happy about and my friend thinks it's going to place because the people who set up the show are afraid someone will try to steal it. I thought that was an awesome compliment. I'm really happey with the way it turned out.
