Dark Cloud another step


Dark cloud step 3.3

Each week more or less i am adding a new layer of “papier maché”,  paper maché, papel maché.

It’s more or less the time needed to dry completly ( depend of the local thickness of the layer).

Also it’s dependent of the ambiant humidity or warm. Actually it’s really good weather in Ibague Colombia, where  i am currently living. And it’s drying very fast. By comparison In paris during winter, it was soooooooo long to dry, months. Better in summer time, but noway actually it’s perfect for this technique.

I am using an acrylic glu and usind recycled paper and carboard ( the eggs box cardboard give the best result). I put the paper and cardboard in a bucket and pump it up with a large stick. And pump it pump it as the paper is fine paste, then i add the acrylic glu. I make a try with an organic glu base on various flour. But unfortunaly it was devasted by mushroom and moisture. I will make an aother try with an fungicide add.

Anyway, I already do not have much time, actually i need to have a result a bit more quicly so using acrylic..

I know it’s out of my plan, using only orgabnic or recycled base supply ( raw material).

see u soon for next step.
