Cryastal on fabric is very inetersting learning process for me. After understanding all the process of crystallization I made ear rings from waste cloth. I cut fabric and make it round shape which is look like a thread. I tried to make them with same weight for both ears with making equal alum solution.

Fabric formwork#

Project No.1#

For this assignment, I wanted to make something with waste fabrics. So, first I decided idea and structure for this project. And make mold for this in solid works with the help of shubham.


I make this mold on solid works.


I create this formwork just to experiment with concreate. I took polyester fabric and cut it with circle shape. And spread vaseline on that plastic. On the other side I took some concrete and mix it with water. I spread that mixture to all over the fabric. Pick up that fabric and put it on any shape pot. After one night I remove that plastic. It’s ready....
