RCA Design Products student Jungin Lee has created an unconventional moulding process, which uses flexible plastic sheets as a mould to produce surreal fibreglass forms that look like frozen fabric.
Starting out with a piece of clear plastic sheet, Jungin screen prints a pattern onto the plastic with ink. A thin layer of jesmonite and fibreglass is then spread over the plastic and left to dry. During this time the coated plastic can be pushed into shape.
After 20 minutes, the plastic sheet is removed leaving behind the screen printed pattern which has completely transferred onto the fibreglass.
The process allows her to shape, apply pattern and finish the pieces all in less than an hour.
