The test worked successfully, however due to the softness of the clay, we lost some of the small details. One of the downfalls of this process was the issue of not being able to develop some sort of skill through continued practice. The stamp worked too well and left no room for errors or happy accidents. It left a very strong digital mark. We decided to move towards a more human process while trying to maintain the use of the stencils which were very successful. We opted towards the initial skill of carving, but using the stencils and spray paint to demarcate the location and depth of the cut. This process leaves the skill of carving and blending the layers to the human to develop. Our thought for this was that if we separated what of carving from the how, it will make it easier for others to focus on other factors such as grain direction, technique and finishing in a much shorter time.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
