ANT_AGONISM sculpture of Juan Isasa

This is the second ant I have made, and this one is full black with a degraded white in the tip of the abdomen. It’s made with dyed wire of different thickness and an abdomen in epoxy and fibreglass. It’s heavy because I have not used casting for the abdomen. It is made by different coats to give the desired shape. For the body I have not used sketching nor measuring tape. I only use my hand to measure. The eyes are glass from Panjiayuan Market in Beijing.

¿Por qué azul? De ninguna manera iba a hacerlo verde. El amarillo era una opción, pero finalmente decidí optar por el azul, que es un color recurrente en mis figuras. Esta vez elegí una mezcla más oscura y con toques rojos en las puntas de las escamas.

BERT is spider is made of common iron wire twisted and re-twisted until I got the final desired look. The abdomen is casted in polyurethane from a mould (I have disposed of it in Singapore before moving to Spain, so there are only 2 such items) and coated with epoxy in bright yellow.

I have a special attraction to spiders. There is something that attracts me in doing moe and more of them. What I really enjoy is shaping the abdomen. In this case I have made it with very long legs with an inner thick wire as frame and twirled with a fine wire all around the legs. I also have added segments of wire to give a different thickness to each section of the legs.
