I’ve started to create a life-size cut out figure!
Here’s a brief development sequence.
The shapes are cut out of the surface of the wax and then stuck to the outside, creating an environment for the figure to inhabit, which is generated by the figure itself…
The original figure is constructed in wax, it’s very delicate, the sticks are needed to support it .
There follows a sequence for the next ‘Cut out figure’ it starts with the gradual construction of the wax:
I have to construct it upside down, so I begin by making a frame around the head, which will act as a stand when the figure is inverted..
Tune in next week to see it turned the right way up, and cutting commence!!
Stuff I’ve found on the camera, that otherwise wouldn’t see the light of day..
