This was from when I was back at home for the Easter break (supposedly a time to relax) and was in the process of finalising 13 projects, all of which need to be submitted into a snazzy looking A3 portfolio by the 19th of May. “FUCK”.
Fear not! For I find the best solution to get past the stresses of essays and coursework is to make something (mainly because I actually have to in order to pass this module). *spoiler alert* You may just get more stressed when you find out how incapable you are at making your first model.
So, here I am again after my 2nd attempt at mixing concrete – the right way this time (Yes I actually read the instructions *shocker*)This is 1 out of a series of 3 models for my ‘Lawns’ project situated in Lincoln.
Step 1: Pour Concrete (preferably into a better mould than this one I made)
Step 2: Don’t cut corners and assume your concrete will dry early…it never will, hence the breakage. So if in doubt leave it for a couple more days to dry.
Step 3: Apparently you can saw concrete. I know right…CRAZY! I used a Fein multimaster power tool using the E-cut universal saw to cut the slots in the concrete.
Step 4: Originally I tried to stick these copper pieces into the slots with more concrete. That logic did not work for this as it was too narrow an area to cover. Instead I wiped it clean and then used normal wood glue and it worked fine and dried clear.
Step 5: Photograph your work! Not too shabby eyyy 🙂
