I work in both mediums of plaster and resin, so for this one I have brought the two together for this fabulous piece! I hand cast the wing and built up layers of acrylics and micaI to give a rich bronze effect. Then built up layers of the shades of blacks, graphite greys and golds that flow through the resin. These are then fused together using my blowtorch and it is this that creates the complexity of textures and various dimensions of the colours. Worded script is also soaked in resin and formed to give a soft 3d effect. Each layer requires 24 to 48 hours to cure before the next is applied, so some pieces can take several days.
Because the resin is highly reflective, when the light catches it, it becomes almost luminescent as the fusion of colours and pigments shine through creating a most stunning, almost 3 dimensional effect. It also changes according to the type of light and time of day.. A piece that seems to constantly change! This is all placed upon a slate which I have found to be an unusual and fabulous backing for my art.
Seeing just a flat picture of my resin art doesn't do it justice..plus it's the trickiest thing to photograph! So...PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT THE SHORT VIDEO at the (bottom of the Resin page) SHOWING AN EXAMPLE OF THE TRUE DEPTH AND BEAUTY OF RESIN ART WHEN IT CATCHES THE LIGHT ;-)
Please note that as each one is individually made it will be slightly different, however I think this adds to it's uniqueness!
60 x 30cm. Plaster and Resin on slate.
N.B I can also make a pair of wings, either on two slates as a diptych or on a 60 x 60 single slate.
