This website tells you about different kinds of resins and what they are useful for, you can also buy resins off this site.
Creating our conveyor belt.
needs to be less accurate at this stage so it will roll around effectively.
look into changing making chalk puppets as they are potentially not re usable.
We will look into the idea of making masquerade masks. This idea still has a strong theatrical element to it.
Because the first batch of egg shell chalk was very brittle we thought we would try again and add another ingredient. This time we added a small amount of rice to the egg shells and ground them all up together. The idea was that the starch in the rice would help bind the chalk more. The chalk takes a while to dry so the result will be in the next post.
It was harder to add pigment into than it was with the egg shell mix.
The end outcome was successful, it picks up on fine details and edges and comes out of a mould easily.
As for the mark it leaves behind it is a lot brighter and easier to see than the egg chalk.
Although it works well the process is to simple and needs an edge to make it more desirable.
The colour came up very well.
Would be harder to mould than plaster of paris as the mixture isn’t as runny.
We need to work on a new ingredient as a binding material? A natural resin of some kind?
The chalk process is fun and more desirable than the plaster of paris as it has more to the recipe. It is a natural substitute to plaster of paris and makes use of an unwanted item.
