Physical Modelling Techniques

Originally posted on (http://moderngazetteer.blogspot.co.uk/2016/10/rachel-11.html) Following our first meeting when we discussed exploring Birmingham through physical casting, specifically using foam, I began to research various modelling techniques. I came across an article, which demonstrated the range of finishes you can achieve with foam; it
