Materials used: Acrylic, resin 

Treatment and process: I think he would have had to mould the acrylic together to hold each ring around each other, then he would have painted on the resin and died the acrylic to get the different colours etc.

Original use for material:

  • Resin- is used for many things, vanishing furniture it is a thick liquids that harden into transparent solids.
  • Acrylic- fake fingernails, doors, paints, furniture, the list goes on.
