When particular human forms are mimicked, it becomes amazing. A fiberglass sculpture artist can turn his fiberglass mat sculptures as realistic or abstract as he desires. The sculpture artist does this expertly as they are trained in model making and puppetry sculptures. When you look at the amazing creations, they almost appear to be people frozen in place, some are life-sized, some smaller or larger. The sculptures have hair; for one thing, the other parts also have variations in color and making.
How does a sculpture artist achieve this? The artists have to follow a typical process. It starts with a form made out of clay. In the next level, the artist has to create subtle details and shapes following the original model. Once the detailing is done it is covered with plaster, removing the clay. A catalyst and fiberglass resin is added to the plaster mold followed by a fiberglass mat. The artist is almost near to his creation. He detaches the mold and the final form emerges. Now it is fine-tuned with paint, dresses, or set within a scene. To make a whole piece it can take months to finish, and as you know a fiberglass sculpture lasts much longer.
By nature and creation, the artists are different. While one is creating figures of human or animal forms in surreal ways, another one may have excellence in combining them to produce uniquely strange and amusing beings. At ConnnectArt sculpture artists also use material and color very well, and the fiberglass creations sometimes appear to be real. They also create animated ones like cartoons as demanded by the buyers.
The popularity of fiberglass art in Kolkata and India as well is gradually increasing. This results in greater demand for producing sculptures for public and residential spaces, parks, gardens, schools and other educational institutes, and more. For example- schools or educational institutes orders for replicas of their mascots, figures of great leaders or the founder of the institute.
Fiberglass allows the artists for unlimited creativity for their creations and fiberglass art is now part of the world environment. The positive effect of this fiberglass trend is the exposure of art to a wide audience. Nowadays as the sculptures are not restricted to museums, they have become part of the everyday life of residents. Thanks to the artists and of course fiberglass for being the sturdy and rust-proof quality that keeps many of the original models remains intact for the long run. Without the special qualities of fiberglass and the artists as creators, the wonders of sculpture just wouldn’t be possible.
