Two new sculptures on the way!
It’s all happening in the studio this year with sculpture construction full steam ahead.
The second of the three newest sculptures “Blicero” is now welded up and all filed ready for it’s patina.
This will need a blast clean, then I’ll torch it, patinate it with HCl, then an alkaline, a wash, heat again and oil to give a very even ‘chocolate’ finish.
I have uploaded a little video of making this sculpture to give an insight into some of my techniques at Arikui.
Also the small sculpture from the “Texas” print is now silver brazed too, this underwent radical changes from the original maquette and is all the better for it. I have decided to explore a zinc coating for this one for the industrial flavour.
