Here are some photos and a couple of (very) short animations i haven been trying out for my perfume cover for the penguin competition.
I started off covering these cheep dolls in wax, letting it drip. This is to create a similar effect to the process used in the novel called Enfleurage, which Jean-Baptiste Grenouille used to collect the scents from the young virgins.
After deciding that i hated the body shapes of these dolls i began to make my own bodies and covered them in wax.
I also began the process of trying to cast these Barbie's, by first covering them in clay to create more realistic shapes and curves. This just didn't work, so i ended up covering the dolls in clay then hanging them, waxing them and photographing them.
