I’m sposed to be working on my ideas for Emma’s new project (3D design award) for which we have to choose a phrase or quote and represent it on a plaque type thing. We’ve been given a limited space of 10x25cm… but no width so it can have parts coming off it.
I’ve chosen ‘Revenge is sweet’ as my phrase (stupidly?) because I think there is a lot of strong imagery that I can create through plays on words, associations and stories (such as Snow white… you will see what I mean when I upload pics of my ideas later).
Here’s a list of stuff I’ve been thinking… just initial ideas:
– Blood red and Black
– Gothic and dark
– Spikey/ Barbed wire fence (to stop people falling into it – easily happens!)
– Graffiti with lipstick
– Cake (burnt in revenge)
– Posion apple with an arrow through it (Snow whiiiiite)
We can basically use anything (ice, chocolate, glitter and pva to form a solid block of glitter… NOT sellotape though hah – class joke about Kirsty) to make it… so its very creative – which in a way is quite a lot of pressure to come up with something amazingly clever to be different and interest people. I can see this project turning into QUITE a competition…. not that there isn’t enough competition in our class already haha
We was arm wrestling yesterday… I am feeling the pain now 🙁 But can say that I am stronger than half the boys in my class, which is 2 out of 4 haha Good times 🙂
This is me arm wrestling Tom – He lost…. lots of times 🙂

I hope everyone’s training themselves up for the Graphics Arm Wrestling Championships on Monday? I think I might have to forefit though… I’ve got table elbow or something? hah
Gel Flex + Plastic bucket + Microwave = Holes and stuff everywhere
The Gel-flex accident! ^^^
Sophie with her saw to the rescue!!
I have a very bad feeling that my apple has decomposed or something…. in the picture above you can see one side is a funny pattern – it was bubbling for AGES :S The gel-flex was so hot that it must have been cooking my apple and the air was escaping??
^ Like christmas – opening the presents! 🙂
^ Inside of the mold – nice and clean 🙂 woo
^ Plaster casting…..
^ about 40 mins later….
^ A plaster apple 🙂 Lovely job!
This week I was also thinking about the arrow that is going to go through the apple…. I did a model with a paper straw and cut some hearts out – I’m really going for the heart theme 🙂
I’m thinking the arrow will be made from either thick metal wire or some thinner wire which I can curl into a spiral/spring-like piece…. what do you think? I have already been using wire to re-create barbed wire and have also tried to make my own heart version of barbed wire! 🙂 I think its cute lol
Next week I’m hoping to do a wax casting by melting some red and green candles – shiny fruit 🙂
What is so special about this damp and dingy alleyway? – It’s got distinction (hopefully) 🙂
I’ve hammered some nails and screws and bent them into the wood! I’ve also dented it with a hammer, drilled holes and chiselled some edges off! 🙂
I think I will rub the dirt into it last… cos otherwise it will all dry off? I might throw some teabags at it too? haha
