This morning we went to our second Flexible “Glass” Sculptures class. Our arti-stik forms from last week were nice and dry, and the kids were able to peel them off of the plastic backing and give them a little 3-D shaping. I completely forgot to snap a picture of them because we were pretty excited about the second portion of today’s class.
Inspired by Chihuly’s Macchia series, we made these little colorful bowl-shaped forms out of coffee filters. The kids colored the filters with watercolor markers, then we sprayed them with starch and draped them over the bottom of a cup to give them shape. Thanks to the spray starch, they will stay in position when we turn them back over after they’re dry.
Here is a finished one:
