Since this subject is being discussed presently, I too have a request =
for ideas about creation of relief sculptures. The choir director in =
our school leads a yearly musical. This year he and his choir are =
performing 'Pippin' in November. The art department helps with scenery =
and sets. We have decided to try and create a Romanesque relief =
sculpture of standing figures. It will have to be light weight as it =
will be mobile. I need ideas for materials that are light, carvable, =
moldable, drapable, and paintable (in order to have a marble or stone =
look). The size will be in the 6' x 8' range. >>
FOAM CORE! Go to your local framer, and have them save pieces. Lightweight,
already cut into squares, glueable, carvable (sp?) and shapeable. Already
white for roman columns, and that speckled spray paint would be worth the
investment for a display that can be reused. I am behind on my artsednets,
but I am sure many have posted similar ideas. It is so perfect.
