Gator Burn 5

This week in sculpture I finished burning the gator and then painted each graphic with watered down acrylic paints. Next week I plan to complete the project by burning a border around the edge. This will be my last project of the year, but I plan to go to honors sculpture for next year.

Gator Burn 4

This week in sculpture I have been working on my Gators plank. The struggle has been real because I borke my two best saugtering iorn tips. By next week I plan to complete this project. The Gator is the last image on this side of the wood but I am debating if i shold burn the back. I would most likely put the Gator mascot and another variation of UF. Stay tuned for some more unique sculpture.

Gator burn

This week in sculpture I have been burnnig a piece of wood that is Gator themed plank. I started this project by picking out gator logos from onlin and then transfering it on to the woodwith graphite pencils. I colored the back of each picture and then traced each on the wood, each of these graphics. I then burnt each of the lines I traced.

Glazed men and a fish

This week in sculpture I glazed the third man of a set of three and glazed my fish which was carved and wood burned. For the set of men I painted, I used Obsidian Glaze. I was finally able to complete the set this week. I glaze the fish to give it a glossy, wet look. To do this i mixed glaze with acrylic paint. The two paints I mix with the glaze were light green and orange to resembel the colors of most river fish.
