Life Casting Craft Bento

RM135.00

Life casting is a historic art technique practiced by several ancient cultures. The practice of life casting was wide spread in the 19th century, during which it was closely linked to both art and science, and was considered a standard part of the sculptor’s technique. Life casting, whether interpreted as a normal sculptural process, documentary piece or affectionate souvenir, soon gave rise, with its near perfect reproduction of reality.

It is the process of creating a three-dimensional copy of a living human body, through the use of molding and casting techniques. Compared to other three-dimensional representations of humans, the standout feature of lifecasts is their high level of realism and detail. Lifecasts can replicate details as small as fingerprints and pores.
