The Rusting Bay bev Knowlden Bev Knowlden SculptureThe Rusting Bay is overflowing with Iron Resin sculpts, all awaiting their moment of glory at the forthcoming Open Studios. When the sculpts come out of the moulds they are a greyish black colour. I then spray them several times a day with water. After a couple of weeks the rusting process begins and I carry on hosing them down for a further 6 – 8 weeks for the full decayed effect! For a less overall rusty finish, I will stop the spraying earlier. It’s a facinating process and each cast is different from the next, even on limited runs, as the finished effect varies a lot.
