Sometimes, words are not enough to tell how you feel. Words can't clearly show the beauty of something that can only be perceived by the eyes. That's why we have Kodachromes to keep it. Here's my collection.
Cara: ID 114 Final Plate: 1:5m Miniature Chair I was assigned to make an Ancient Roman Chair. :) And since the Romans were very particular about grandeur and all that, I decided to make a throne. The material for the actual chair is marble. *close enough* I used pink resin mixed with Marble dust.
1. Make a waste mold from clay. 2. Cast everything in plaster to get the mold.
3. Pour in the resin to make a new positive mold. 4. Polishing all the details and make the cushion. :p
I was guided by a sculptor/professor Manolo Sicat from UP Diliman-Fine Arts so all these knowledge in sculpting came from him. The patience for teaching and helping me with this project. Thank you, sir! :-)
Plus my brother also helped me with the finishing touches. :)
Too happy for the end product! Hardwork, patience, consistency and overflowing motivation! :p I must say, do not underestimate sculpting. Sobrang nakakatanga. I’m not sure if this will be my first and last.. we’ll see.
Oh yeah! We’re done with our miniature chairs, finally!
But as you can see, I still haven’t upholstered it yet. I was able to finish the upholstery almost two hours after that. My chair is a Queen Anne Boston Walnut Side Chair. I used a floral patterned chitz for the upholstery. Above me is Bat and her Hepplewhite Side Chair upholstered in white. Beside me is Kathleen with her throne chair of a period I have forgotten. It has lot of intricate works on it. Above her is Anna and her Chippendale Side Chair upholstered with brown leather. And the guy on top is Joshua and his French Caquetoire, also called the “gossip chair”.
