I think the most successful part of this piece was the wax finger element. They were by far the most interesting medium and the most unique idea. If I could have done this piece again, I would have spent more time making the paper and poster elements less rough. I feel like the homely look of the paper parts really downgrades the quality of the piece and makes it look cheap. My original plan was to have an entire wax-cast hand coming out of the board with lots of spikes of varying lengths surrounding it. I also planned on having two or three different boards combined together to make the background. This piece looks nothing like the original plan due to logistical complications, but the same idea of contrast and shapes were used. I think the cardboard piece helped me create this piece because it familiarized me with the technique of making curved lines with an X-Acto knife. In my opinion, my tile really had no bearing on this project. In this piece, I originally used plaster to mold my hands. When this failed, I had to find another medium that would work better, and settled on wax.
