Plastics and Art. Caroline Bunnell Kar-Chan Choong Crystal Hou. Introduction. Art – no single definition, use of skills and imagination in creation of aesthetic objects, environment, or experiences that can be shared with others.
- Fillers: Color (pigments), texture (sand, gravel)
- Grounded bronze added to polyester mix to give the appearance of cast bronze
”The Thinker” resistant polycarbonate sheeting are used – can be heat-formed to curve and shape, high resistance to breakage.
by Auguste Rodin
In bonded bronze
- step growth polymerization
- the molecular weight is then increased in a curing step, reacted with an anhydride
- a mold is created by clay; epoxy is then applied to mold and then allowed to dry
”Red Sculpture” resistant polycarbonate sheeting are used – can be heat-formed to curve and shape, high resistance to breakage.
Gerard BowlesMaterials are epoxy and polyester resins
- chain scission breaks backbone bonds, creates free radicals
- ultraviolet radiation is absorbed and cleavage occurs along main chain and phenyl ring, creates carbonyl-group formation
- a foam sculpture is set into a sand mold the sand is packed tightly, then a molten metal is added to the mold
- a solution that is made from synthetic or natural resins dissolved in organic solvents, after drying it creates a protective film on the surface.
- easy to damage
- they collect dirt and dust giving the
work a “dirty appearance”
Pigment can be considered, as an objective of a painting and medium is a means to an end. In order to serve the pigment well and to preserve the life of a painting, all media have to meet certain requirements. These requirements are follow:
Natural Resins medium is a means to an end. In order to serve the pigment well and to preserve the life of a painting, all media have to meet certain requirements. These requirements are follow:
* Oil and watercolor.
* Used it as interior and exterior house paints by most artists.
* Acrylic and Vinyl.
*Have a number of advantages over natural Resins. (i.e. quick drying time, reduced yellowing with time.)Natural and Synthetic Binders (Resins)
David Alfaro Siqueiros through out the twentieth century paints. They are…
*Claimed to be the first artist who used it as a painting material.
* Used it as in unconventional way such as; staining, dripping, and pouring fluid paint onto a support.
* Dripping paint on the horizontally place canvas.
* His way of painting was different from usual techniques of painting.Who used Nitro-cellulose and how they used it?
