MOD ROCK
In this session i created a cast of my hand with mod rock.
First step we put vaseline on any part of our body that we was going to mod rock.This prevents the mod rock not to stick to your skin when it solidifies.
Secondly we cut the mod rock into strips then placed it into water and started pasting it on our body part.
When i was mod rocking a tip that i picked up on was to use a lot of water on the mod rock to smooth it and prevent bumps appearing.
Something i struggled with when creating my piece was that i had to start over a couple of times because i was covering my whole hand with modrock then realizing that there wouldn't be any way to take it of.
Im very happy about my piece and i think it is very successful.

ALGINATE AND PLASTER
When we was creating alginate mold we used two parts of water and one part of alginate.
First pour your water and the your alginate in a container. Slowly combine it together mixing it with a spoon and making sure all bumps are gone. Place whatever body part you wish in the mixture and wait for approximately two minutes till the liquid has solidified.

Secondly you need to make your plaster to pour into the mold.To do this you will need one part of water and one part of plaster. Start with the water and then add your plaster. Begin to tap into the bole to prevent air bubbles. Stir the mixture with your hands make sure its thick enough then pour into the alginate.

Lastly wait for about 20 minutes till the plater has dried up (you can tell by it dried up when it starts producing heat). Take it out of the alginate and start working into your sculpture.

FIRST EXPERIMENT

In this session we made various different molds with plaster. The first object i used was a jammy dodger biscuit. To create this mold I rolled out a lump of clay till it was about 1cm thick.Then i pressed the biscuit into the clay and built a wall around it to contain the plaster. Then i poured the plaster in and let it set. I did not think this was successful because i think i should of made the clay thicker as it was very thin. However the pattern of the biscuit was very successful.

The second mold i did was one in a foil container. Firstly I placed objects like an oreo and a pen into the plaster and then waited for that to solidified. I struggled with taking the pen out because it was embedded in the mold and when it was dry it was difficult to get out. The same oreo it melted inside the plaster and was impossible to get out. The next time i try this i need to not cover the whole object in plaster. Only if you want the outside of the shape then embed it in the plaster.
