ERTHWURLD molds


Last week on the ERTHWURLD project.

We created the two part plaster mold for Lou, Here is the first half with Lou set nicely in the clay ready for the plaster to be poured on top.



The mold is all boarded up and then the edges are sealed with more clay to create a tight seal so no plaster escapes.


pouring on the plaster (slowly to avoid trapped air)




The mold is then left for two days to dry


Then we detach the boards (carefully)



Here you can see the four corners of clay we used to create the seal.



Here we are unsticking the mold from the table with wire.






Flipped upside down and then we peel the clay off.





A nice clean one half of a mold.

After this stage is complete we repeat the first stages again, until we get a full complete mold.

Here is the complete mold, after a week in the dry room we will be able to open it and clean it, then the mold will get stored with the Tizzie mold until we do the Foam latex part.




Also this week we have been messing around with a logo for the ERTHWURLD project, I wanted to incorporate all the books into the logo so i decided to use silhouettes to create something that really stands out.

Here is the logo, we are still at this time tweaking it with some very nice feed back from fans, so it still may change yet :)
 
Over the next 2 weeks we will be working on the MR.Sand mold and sculpting the giant crabs for the beach scene, so look out for those and as always feeback is important so any comments or questions are always welcome.
Here are some important links for you,

Meet - The Gar


 Meet The Gar

The Gar is a Hip-Hop group from Stoke-on-Trent. The Group consists of Two brothers - Dirty D, Benny Blaze and cousin to the two Bobby J!
The Gar means family/clan in Cantonese and comes from the idea of the 5 main Kung Fu families in China and their styles.
The Gar have performed at many venues and carnivals, up and down the country, including the 'Love Music Hate Racism' festival where they were found on the main stage alongside acts such as Kano, Beverley Knight and Kelly Rowland!
The Group have been making and performing music underground for around a decade and close ties with DJ Niceness and Wolftown's 'Tricksta' has seen them feature on the UK runnings mixtape series alongside rappers such as 'Rick Ross' and 'Papoose'. The group were also extremely lucky to make a track with former Bad Boy producer Herb Middleton who has worked with the likes of Biggie, Nas and Mary J! 

At black box building we are proud and privileged to be working with The Gar on creating there first music video for the track "broke as me"
