As I have always been interested in materials, I thought I ought to learn about the use of concrete for sculpture in case I ever wanted to connect a piece of sculpture with a concrete building. The major problem right now is identifying the materials to use. This is a proprietary mix that contains all the right ingredients in the correct proportions including burn out fibres for better water elimination. If you use it seriously,it becomes a serious sculpture medium.

Which might end up cracking the cement? How will this hold up? I like to work much larger, but of course there are problems and expense with working large. I'm prepared to spend the rest of my life doing this. Maybe someone can help? Beyond the basic principles of concrete, the book explains mixes and additives and how these mixes must be changed for different uses.

In he made a large concrete figure called Bather. Considering most people usually add some cement even for a cob oven, the only difference appears to be lime and perhaps more cement? Let me know how you are doing! As we have a major reworking of part of the garden, I decided it was time for Palinurus, with dangerous areas of metal armature sticking out, to go too. What more can you ask of any material.

Sculpture in ciment fondu book

One of the first examples of the use of reinforced concrete in Britain were the Lawn Road flats in Belsize Park, London, also known as the Isokon Building, designed by the architect Wells Coates and completed in Revised in Your input and suggestions are increasing the list.

The product is readily available from refractory suppliers. In he made a large concrete figure called Bather. He produced a concrete mother and child sculpture that was bought by the influential collector and patron of Moore Sir Michael Sadler.

So you just mix the portland cement with water alone and begin to sculpt it directly. The success of his pieces depended on his ability to choose the right consistency of concrete for the chosen shape, and the right amount of aggregate so as not to overwhelm the surface qualities of that shape.

Great work! This was a period of experimentation and rapid development in his career in which he explored this new medium alongside stone and wood. The morning was fun though. Gravity pulls it down if it is too wet.

I'd actually like to allow the copper wire to extend from the cement so I can use those wires to weave her leg, hmmm or hand? Advice will be given on which tools are appropriate for different tasks and how to use and maintain them. I fell in love with Elders stepping stones, and garden low wall.

In the late s the sculpture came to rest in our garden Over the years the material — plaster filled with iron-filings terrosa ferrata — slowly disintegrated, and parts disappeared. The clinker for this cement is prepared in a separate production facility using a reverberatory furnace in which the raw materials are melted to form the clinker.

That should be treated of course before slapping on concrete. The speed with which he was forced to work and the damage to his tools caused by setting concrete may also have led him to choose to experiment with casting and carving, rather than modelling. I can be mized with bronze powder and can then be patinaed as you would real bronze I'm wondering about using metalic spray paint on a leaf form.

Once the mould is reassembled, at its most simple the casting material is poured into the void and left to set. I think the bigger fear is rebar and rust. And did you say that you can add more cement to the sculpture by just wetting it down with water and applying another layer of new cement.Ciment Fondu is a proprietary product made by Kerneos (previously Lafarge Aluminates) for industrial use but widely adopted by sculptors.

It is a type of calcium aluminate cement used for constructing moulds or outdoor works. Typically Ciment Fondu needs to be used as a composite material reinforced with fibre glass, building up the mould in. rapid drying Ciment Fondu® concretes and mortars Mix proportions for mortar*++ Sand 40 l 4 Water 10 l Mix proportions for concrete*+ Water 10 l 4 Gravel 40 l Sand 25 l ++ Ciment Fondu® 25 kg Directions for use * water/cement ≤ is the minimum proportion of Ciment Fondu® for Kg/m3.

For all your sculpting and casting supplies, just visit or call Sculpture Supply Canada, Canada's leading supplier of products and services specifically for artists and industry since widely used by sculptors is ciment fondu, which is extremely hard and quick setting.

A recent invention—at least, in appropriate forms for sculpture—concrete is rapidly replacing stone for certain types of work. Because it is cheap, hard, tough, and durable, it is particularly suitable for. Alison started sculpting when she joined a class in London learning life modelling in clay and casting in ciment fondu but she now works in a wide variety of media.

To withstand the weather all her garden sculptures are cast in resin with a metallic finish.
