We’re used to think of pencils as tools to create art, but a recent trend makes the pencils the art itself. Artists began creating bowls and vases out off colored pencils and epoxy glue. The trend became viral and sculptures began carving blokes of epoxied pencils into real sculptures. Here are a video of the process, pictures of sculptures and objects created with the technique.
Making a pencils skull:
A bloke of epoxied pencils
The final shots of the finished skull, meticulously carved from a solid block of colouring pencils, 646 pencils were used to make the block and it has taken me over a month to complete this piece, it sold last night and i will miss him dearly when he is gone, I named him Wilson. I have no plans to repeat this carving, it was one of the toughest carving projects i ever embarked on, i just wanted to be able to say i was the first carver to carve a full scale, full skull from pencils:) #thebrokenbiscuitrepairshop #askullisforlifenotjustforhalloween
Pencil bowl in the making:
Pencil bowl in the making – not one of my most cost effective woodturning pieces, these are more a labour of love, but always fun. #art #artists #artist #pencilbowl #woodturning #woodart #woodwork #woodworkaustralia #colourful #decor #etsyseller #etsy #morningtonpeninsula #redhill #jasonrogasch #woodbowl #recycling
