Features : Barrier resistance, color saturation, movement
The nature of materials used is described according to their chemical consistency as
hydrophilic, hydrophobic and amphipathic. Hydrophilic is ‘water-loving’ such as milk,
wool, cotton, etc. Hydrophobic is ‘water-repelling’, for examples oil, waxes, fats, etc . An
amphipathic is a term describing a chemical compound possessing both hydrophilic and
hydrophobic character, like soap. Along with wax, soap, we have used dry color powder
which resist the liquidity of the wax and results in a splash-like, rough texture illusion.
In combination with a layering method it allowed us to express 3d visual depth.
Opposing the powder, the oil paint colors can easily be mixed to a
homogenous consistency with a melted soap or wax, creating heavy solid module.
