In the summer of 2018 I took a course at creative media skills for prop making: the essentials. During this course we leant how to use fast cast to make a mould for a resin.
In order to make this I first made a plastiline model, that was then used to make a silicone mould. That was used to then make a resin model.
I used the fast cast technique in order to ensure that it set as quickly as possible. This meant that I would be able to move on to different painting techniques.
I used bronze spray paint on one of the models to give a steam punk effect. Making it appear to be made of metal, thus giving it the effect of being a different material to how it appeared.
The next two I painted with acrylic paints in order to give more details and make it look more like a clock face.
The final one I added paint into the rubber mould before pouring in the resin. This was so that I could see the effect of this without having to paint it first.
These designs were inspired by the clock face used in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Which is a set made of plaster, wood and fiberglass.
