Who Are You? Book Sculpture by wetcanvas Who Are You? Book Sculpture by wetcanvas
Before anyone says it, yes, I know I've been doing A LOT of Alice lately. This was a commission, so don't blame me!

My client wanted to add a little color to this one. I tried a few different types of pigment, but everything I used made the paper too fragile to use for the figures. I used watercolor for the flowers and leaves. I do like the contrast between the white figures and the bright flowers. I think they set each other off well.

I understand you! It's true that it is a bit difficult to separate yourself from something you made and you're fond of, but for certain you made another person happy!

Beautiful.

About the fragility of the paper.

I do a lot of modeling, and sometimes have to use paper. Once I mold it in the shape I want, I spritz it with a dilute solution of white glue and water, LIGHTLY, over many (MANY) passes so as not to drench it. I lightly wet it and let it dry, a process that takes a few days for an almost plastic like texture that does not detract from the material beneath nor it's appearance. It is tedious, but results in a satisfactory piece.

That is BRILLIANT! So simple, but I never would have thought of doing it. I'll get it a shot nest opportunity I get. Thank you!
