This week I finally finished my piece ! It was maybe the best critique I've had in a looooong time, we did a cold read and the kids seemed to really pick up what I was putting down. The main theme that I took away in terms of the meaning of my art is seduction. Not sure I've ever described my work with that word, but it does make a lot of sense. Scott said "its about something you want but can't have," and I wanted to cry lmaooooo
Of course, the flocking did not go as planned. This was my third time with the damn flocking. After I sealed it, I used wood glue as my adhesive of choice and ended up taking the flock and pressing it into the wood with my hand. Probably would have been better to use an oil based glue instead of a water based one. I think the sealant was oil based so they began to reject each other and the flock didn't perfectly adhere. But I went with it anyway...
Here is my on the scary latter ! I did not enjoy being that high up, very thankful for my classmates helping me out !!
Here you can really see the glue not working lmao. But anyway I didn't feel like the work was complete. I wanted to add a delicate touch and decided on this little "secretion" made of hot glue. I am very happy with it, it probably looks so simple but jesus h christ it took me like three hours to make and attach it, the hot glue had to be the perfect temperature to make the drip, but then string out nice and thin.
