Transcript of 3D Art: Papier-mache Masks, Plaster Hand Sculptures

Exploring 3D Art
Papier-mâché Mask
Exploring 3D Art
Element of Art: Value

Principle of Design: Contrast

Other Vocab.: proportion, paper-mâché, armature
VALUE
*ADD TO ELEMENTS BOOK*
Value refers to the relative lightness and darkness, and involves various levels of contrast.
Contrast
*ADD TO PRINCIPLES BOOK*
Creating tension between opposites. Can be the use of several elements of art to hold the viewer's attention and to guide the viewer's eye through the artwork.

LARGE/SMALL DARK/LIGHT
SOFT/HARD BLACK/WHITE
DULL/BRIGHT
Proportion
* ADD TO VOCAB. NOTES IN ART FOLDER *
The size relationship(s) between figures and other objects in a work of art. The relative size of parts of a whole.

TO SCALE (realistic) LIFE-SIZE MONUMENTAL MINIATURE IDEALIZED EXAGGERATED
*** ADD TO VOCAB. NOTES IN ART FOLDER ***
A material, made from paper pulp or shreds of paper mixed with glue, that can be molded into various shapes when wet, and becomes hard and suitable for
painting when dry
Papier-Mâché
** ADD TO VOCAB. NOTES IN ART FOLDER **
A framework or supporting core around which a sculpture is built.
Can be made of wire, wood, newspaper, foil, or in our case: Milk jugs, cardboard, and foil
Armature
First, decide what type of mask you want to make, you have 2 options:
MAKE A MASK INSPIRED BY YOUR ALTER EGO
(aka your second self, ex: Beyonce = Sasha Fierce, Clark Kent = Superman) OR
MAKE A MASK INSPIRED BY ONE OF THE CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS FROM YOUR HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS
(recreate designs, shapes, and features you've seen in their artwork)

Sketch the basic shape of your mask, think about how you'll construct the armature using a milk jug, cardboard, and/or foil
Also sketch a few ideas for the exterior decorations/motifs that you will add once your mask is complete (you can paint it, or cover it with paper/fabric scraps)
VESSEL REQUIREMENTS:
your mask should be at least 8" tall, and have AT LEAST 2 ATTACHMENTS (horns, wings, exaggerated facial features like eyelashes, eyebrows, nose, lips, ears, etc.

Paper-mâché Mask
Exploring 3D Art
Once I approve your sketch, you may begin building your armature using a milk jug, cardboard, and foil
First, cover your milk jug with a clear plastic trash bag (so we can reuse it), use tape to hold it in place
WRITE YOUR NAME & PERIOD ON A PIECE OF MASKING TAPE ON THE BACK OF YOUR ARMATURE
Then build & add attachments using masking tape
Apply 4-5 layers of newspaper strips, dipping each one in the paste (1/2 glue, 1/2 water)
Let each layer dry completely before applying the next layer!!
Once your mask is completely dry, you need to apply a final layer of white copy paper, and then you will decorate the exterior using paint, fabric, paper, and texture scraps

Self-assessment
BELLWORK 3/30/15
What do you like most about your clay creature box?
Papier-mâché Mask Example: Inspired by the work of Yinka Shonibare MBE
BELLWORK 4/1/15
What is an armature?
What recycled materials will you use to build your mask armature today?
BELLWORK 4/22/15
Paper-mâché Mask
Exploring 3D Art
Once you have at least 4-5 layers of newspaper strips on your mask, you need to
CAREFULLY
remove the milk jug from the back
Use scissors to cut the plastic - throw away
We'll come around and collect the milk jugs
Reinforce the edges of your mask with masking tape
CAREFULLY cut out any holes
you want for eyes, nose, mouth - draw outline in sharpie first!
Complete
ONE
layer of newspaper strips on the inside of the mask to strengthen it
Next, add
ONE
layer of white copy paper to the front and back of your mask, let it dry
Finally, decorate your mask using PAINT AND AT LEAST TWO OTHER MATERIALS (paper scraps, fabric, beads, etc.)
Plaster Hand Sculpture

Elements of Art:
VALUE & COLOR
Principles of Design:

VARIETY & CONTRAST
http://www.thecraftyninja.com/plaster-hand-project/
Variety
Involves changing the character of an element, to make it different. Variety is needed to create visual interest. Artwork that uses many different colors, values, lines, textures, and shapes demonstrates this principle of design.
PLASTER CRAFT
Strips of gauze covered in plaster powder
We'll wet the strips with water, apply to your hand armature, and then it dries hard
Plaster Hand Sculpture
Exploring 3D Art
Complete 2-3 DIFFERENT sketches of your hand in your sketchbook, decide on your favorite for the final project.
Decide what position your hand will be in for your sculpture
Keep fingers open as much as possible
, so you can fill each finger individually, and so the glove can be easily removed
Make sure your sketch also shows how you're planning on decorating the exterior of your sculpture, and what materials you'll use (paint, charcoal, collage, Sharpie, etc.)
Also, go ahead and get a
plastic plate
from the back table, write your
name
and
period
on a piece of masking tape with a Sharpie, and place it on the top edge of your plate
Plaster Craft Hand Sculpture
You'll be creating your hand sculpture
by filling a glove
with plaster (either plaster craft or liquid)
You may work alone or with a partner AT YOUR TABLE!
Once your sculpture is dry, you'll
carefully

remove/cut the glove
and leave it on your plate on the back shelves to continue drying
You can use
crumpled magazine paper
as a cushion to support your hand's position on your plate
Then you'll decorate the exterior of your sculpture with acrylic paint, magazine collage, charcoal, etc.
Plaster Craft Hand Sculpture
Rubric
Self-assessment
GO OUTSIDE - Mix one bucket (64oz.) of plaster with almost a full bucket of water. Use stir stick to mix once water is added, get any dry chunks off the bottom - should be a milky consistency.

One person holds the glove open while another person carefully pours the plaster to fill the glove (not all the way, just past base of thumb). Twist closed, and add rubber band at base.

Let your hand sculpture dry completely, flat on your plastic plate (labeled with your name and period), turn your plate upside down to keep in more flat.

Once dry, CAREFULLY remove the glove with scissors - try to avoid breaking any fingers so you don't have to do any repairs.

Repair any broken pieces with more plaster strips the next day.

IF ANYONE AT YOUR TABLE STILL NEEDS TO
MAKE/REMAKE THEIR PLASTER HAND:

SEAT #1
: GRAB A CLEAR BUCKET FILLED WITH DRY PLASTER (BACK TABLE WITH STIR STICK)
SEAT #2
: GRAB 1 BIG
CLEAR
BUCKET OF WATER FOR YOUR GROUP
SEAT #3
: GRAB AN APRON FOR EVERYONE AT YOUR TABLE
SEAT#4
: GRAB 2 PAIRS OF SCISSORS FOR YOUR GROUP AND A BASKET FILLED WITH PLASTER CRAFT STRIPS
PLASTER HAND SCULPTURE PREP
Plaster Hand Sculptures
Once your plaster hand is dry, CAREFULLY remove glove, then use plaster craft strips to:
Reattach any broken pieces, fill in any holes/gaps
Reinforce and fix any cracks or breaks
Sand the hand smooth with the black screens (on my desk)
DRAW YOUR HAND'S DESIGN IN PENCIL FIRST!
Decorate the exterior of your hand sculpture with acrylic paint, magazine collage, Sharpies, charcoal, etc.
WRITE YOUR NAME AND PERIOD ON THE BOTTOM OF YOUR HAND USING A SHARPIE
Fill out the grade slip and self-assessment - staple and turn into your class basket, leave hands on the back shelves
Value
Value refers to the relative lightness and darkness and is perceived in terms of varying levels of contrast.
COLOR
Color
** ADD TO ELEMENTS BOOK**
Color is produced by the way our vision responds to different wavelengths of light. All colors come from the three primaries (red, yellow, and blue) and black and white.
*NOTES: Color has three properties - hue, value, and intensity.
COLOR
Neutral Colors: white, black, gray, brown
**NOTES:
Contrast
Creating tension between opposites. Can be the use of several elements of art to hold the viewer's attention and to guide the viewer's eye through the artwork.

LARGE/SMALL DARK/LIGHT
SOFT/HARD BLACK/WHITE
