15/03/2016 - BODY CASTING

I have been designing very strucally for this project - after looking at the peeling forms of the bona tree I have become every focused on the waist of the body to design fro and am interested of the flaky texture of the trunk and the leaves thus leading me to want to experiment and casting. today I cast my chest and torso to use for a drape to counting to inform my silhouette further. I like the idea of using the body to distort the body in the same way a corset would just in a more shaped with. The cast isn't as thick as I would like due to me running out of mod rock so I will get more in order to cast the leaves and experiment with them peeling off the corset
