Iodised Sculptures

Term: 3 Year: 2018

Perspective drawings and iodised sculptures

Students designed and built a model of a large sculpture to be created from spheres, cylinders and cones. The design included a shaded design drawing of the sculpture using perspective. Students then constructed their 3D model using polystyrene spheres, cylinders and cones on a cardboard base. They painted the Styrofoam with a verdigris finish, an easy to use brass based paint, and applied an oxidising patina over the top. This paint transforms objects quickly and effectively. To achieve the same effect, paint on 2 coats of Verdigris Base and apply Oxidising Patina over the top.
