Test 4 – Oxide bubbles

Test 4 - Oxide bubbles

This test combines the building methods I am developing with the application of oxides via blowing bubbles.

The outer surface of the piece has come apart quite a lot and the work is very fragile. One possible explanation for this is that because the work had dried before I applied the wet oxides, the extra water pulled the outer surface away as it absorbed and expanded the material. I might be able to avoid this in the future by preparing the oxide-bubbles in advance and applying them before the papier-mâché has dried.
