Decorating a flower pot with clay

20150331_162254

After all that modelling I got the idea of creating a chimp or monkey head to be used as a flower pot. A nice practical way to create such a thing is maybe beyond me at the moment, but I’ve got a few ideas!

Although I’ve gone ahead and made a unified model of a chimp face, I think creating individual features like a mr potato decorating kit would work well. Instead I’m going to use an air drying modelling material and attach reproductioins of this clay model to a flower pot with glue.

This is the clay model with silicone poured over it. I’ll hopefully use this as a mould to create some positives with modelling material.

Quick post today, but I would love to dedicate a post to one about context of the work I’ve made recently.

Spray paint and stencils

I found this amazing wallpaper of a chimpanzee online and decided to make a stencil with it. I used a few adjustments on photoshop to change it to monochrome, and turned up the black levels until I had something that would work as a one part stencil.

I can definatly make some improvements on this, but hopefully keeping it as a one part job!

Part two coming soon

Get your monkey’s out!
