Coloration of a sculpture of Rafflesia full scale ; From the time he was very young, he has dissected, sketched an sculpted
everything he notices during his hikes. While completing studies in biology,
he worked on perfecting his moulding and painting techniques. Today he serves
art and natural history museums by restoring collections or making educational
moulds and models. First he sculpts and models the subject. With the help of
elastomers an resins, he then casts his creation. Next comes the most delicate
phase : giving the animal or plant realistic, lifelike colors.
Acrylic paint applied with brush and airbrush.
Rafflesia, the largest flower in the world.
