The Renaissance - Continues

Here are some pictures from our bas-relief project, here we are putting the latex onto the clay forms that we previously prepared. There will end up being about 10 layers of the latex when we are all finished. The latex is quite thick, thicker than I expected it to be, and it has a very strong smell. It is hard to get a light even coat of it, and I think we'll have some goopy areas. It is pretty fun to spread around, though.

Putting latex on the clay forms, layer 1.

More latex.

This stuff is really stinky, by the way. Do it with the windows open.
