Paper mache

After creating my paper I started to think of ways I could shape and form to create a light, i though paper mache would be a quick technique to experiment with. This is my first test piece, the PVA has reacted with the golf flakes which was in the paper I made, I wasn’t very happy with how it looked but after seeing it with light inside I really like it, it looks like there’s mold growing in it.DSC_0576DSC_0579

I made a simple tube from the paper to see how light traveled through, I added a plastic cap on the bottom and you can see where I didn’t seal it completely that strong light shines through, it would be interesting to experiment with lazer cutting shapes on the cap, they would produce interesting spot lights.
