My idea for the upcycle project is to cast an acrylic sculpture. I am thinking of using scrap pieces of acrylic as my medium. A mold for the sculpture can be created using silicone which cannot be done using an upcycle method. However, after the silicone mold has been created, it can be reused infinitely.
The process is to melt the acrylic in a saucepan in a well ventilated area. The molten acrylic is then poured into the mold and set to cool. By varying in the different colors of acrylic, a unique multi-color sculpture can be produced. More details to come.
