A Casa Bonita inspired art show
Never having entered an art show before, with 2 weeks to the deadline, I jumped on the band wagon and put together a piece.
Working in medical 3D printing, I’m lucky enough to occasionally have access to using our extremely high-quality resin 3D printers for my own projects. So, taking inspiration from the iconic pink facade and combining it with the rocky diving pool, I drew a design in Adobe Illustrator, imported it into Solidworks, created a model, and printed it. I used cotton balls, mod podge, and gravel to create the rocky surface. Poured resin in 3 layers with shattered glass and glitter in each layer, and picked the perfect pink to match the facade. To finish it off, I used clear acrylic coated with shattered glass, glitter, and opalescent cellophane to create a cascade of water.
And then I started getting nervous! I had never done anything like this before but, when the gallery opening finally rolled around, we arrived and it was a blast. There were so many creative, talented people who had taken the time to put something together for this show that I was simply thankful to be able to be a part of it.
