For the construction of this sculpture, a support body made of Styrofoam was made first. The Styrofoam body was then reinforced with a light rebar structure. Support body and rebar structure were then covered with a layer of glass fiber concrete about 1 cm thick. Subsequently, the glass fiber concrete was sanded. To achieve the final surface structure of the sculpture, a special adhesive mortar was applied and sculpted with spatula, brush and cling film. Subsequently different layers of colored water glass (sodium silicate) were applied. In between, the concrete sculpture was sanded again. Finally, the sculpture was treated with acid stain here and there.
According to the manufacturers of the materials used, the concrete sculpture is weather-resistant and frost-resistant. Also in terms of color, no major changes are expected.
These objects are unique.
