This piece which I have designed did not meet its ending. However, the process of creating and planning such a beast of work is exhausting or at least very bothersome.
Alright, the first step I took was removing the grip tape in order to have two smooth surfaces and give the final product a nice red wood look. Once I removed the grip tape I quickly noticed that the board still contained glue residue from the tape.
So, that leads me into step two I first tried to scrape the residue off with a razor blade, then a palette knife/workers spatula, but finally what gave me the result I desired without damaging the original red stain was an eraser. I constantly rubbed it back and forth across the board until the glue was completely off. Very good!
Step three, I first just started by thinking of flowers, and at this point the piece was just something else I would create. After several hours of thinking I decided to not only create something amazing but make an amazing gift to someone special to me, hence the name of the piece "familiae semper" meaning "always family". That not only gave the piece a purpose rather than being another piece, but it gave me motivation to truly invest thought and time into how the piece as a final would turn out.
Step four, there is none. I would have likely polished the piece and set-up the wheels and tripod head. Those last two pieces would have made the piece truly functional.
Well folks that is it. Have a good one.
My name is Miguel Fuentes. What's poppin? I can't say I'm the greatest with my hands in terms of art. I personally prefer photography, and film-making in the sense of art. Although, I believe stepping outside the regular can always be exhilarating. Well, I hope you find some inspiration or at least some form of admiration in my art. Deuces!
