The Melting Bear
Barcelona 2013
Personal Project.

This project is a collaboration with my friend artist Dani Raya.
This melting bear represents the new shitty world we are living in. We wanted to do an experimental work mixing diferent materials like clay, wax and plastic.
MAKING OF:
 
1º- Sculpting process with reference.The first step is creating a base mesh and then refining the final volumes to get the right shape.
2º- Getting some wax at the supermarket and melting it in a pan. With a lot of care, dropping the hot wax on the bear sculpture for melting simulation.
3º- I bought some suitable workers and a pack of tractors. The final touches were grating some plastic and wax to get diferents textures and just putting the figures in place.
4º- Photo shooting (I know It is a horrible photo but I am not a professional photographer).
5º- Cleaning up the original photo.
6º- Final result. Putting new figures and shadows and color correcting the overall look.
Thanks for watching
:)
