Vacuum Forming

This was a mini-project created using the vacuum-former at the Innovation, Media, Research, and Commercialization (IMRC) Center. I vacuum-formed a starfish, which created a surprisingly detailed mold that I was able to cast using a pine resin mixture. I inserted several small pieces of sea glass and shells to reflect the theme of the sea from within the piece.
