Photo Description:
This piece is made from liquid silicone and plaster. Everything is hand painted with acrylic paints and embellished with hand made glass beads. The liquid silicone has been set in a plaster mould that originally been shaped by foam cut out into round diamonds and finally layered to represent beastly reptile scales. The silicone is used as a mat to contrast both hands (also made from plaster). To show the beast unleashing it’s dark evil powers, one hand is painted fully black and the other with black streaks. The potion bottle is called ‘life renewal.’ This bottle is recycled and consists a mixture of glue, food dye and sparkles. Finally the hand painted glass beads represent the eyes of the beast.
