My research on Bart Hess started from material exploration. Review what I did so far, I’ve already led my project work into a product making stage. However, the product now is still not innovative. I analysis my whole work, in my opinion, the most important part I’ve missed is pushing the translated skin into product stage. […]Read more "Artist Research: Bart Hess"
Based on the experiment I did, I drew a new pattern and adjust it by software. This 3D vacuum heat print would show better result with higher contrast and saturation color. Also, the machine would turn all the color more purple. So I adjusted the color into a state which more fit the machine’s colors […]Read more "Product making record: Try another color pattern"
In my last last tutorial, Jiwan suggested me to develop this flat plates at the same time. Because I was carrying on the other shell making, so I put less time on this one. Here is another pieces which I spread digital coat and baked the into white, then do colors afterwards.Read more "Keep developing flat plate samples"
I used this mould to make more connectors, buy this time I colored the rubber liquid. This kind of soft rubber is for transparent shells. This plan is still in experiment stage, not into product plan yet.Read more "Colorful rubber connectors making"
Using metal shell and 3D vacuum heat print color the surface is my plan for the first product in this stage. The results shows nice color and patterns, but as I expected, the pattern was nicer than colors. The heat print weakened the color, so I should make the color deeper in software. Another problem […]Read more "Product making process record 1"
I drew this one on a paint board attached with a textile fabric. The colors I chose are all color palette from lizard skin I researched on. I drew this pattern and re-painted it in software, showing different results. I drew these on the paint board with acrylic colors, and also re-painted in software.Read more "Drawing patterns for 3D vacuum print colors(Pictaflex)"
This blog is mainly a record for making process and some failed test pieces. The digital spread is a preparation for heat print afterwards(Pictaflex machine). Press forming the aluminum sheet and titanium sheet were failed, reason were aluminum has bad ductility so it couldn’t be formed into a half sphere; titanium is too hard to […]Read more "Test pieces recently made: Digi spread; Titanium and aluminum press forming failure; resin casting"
