11 // Composites :: The Shwing

This is a Shwing. It's a Swing + a Sheep. It was made by accident. The materials I used was hemp and SmoothCast. Some notes: if you make something big and you want to vacuum form it make sure your bag is absolutely airtight. If not, you will run into problems and probably when your composite is already curing. At least this is what happened to me: I got a hole somewhere on my vacuum bag, so the pump couldn't compress my shape enough. But luckily I could turn the defect into a feature and made a swingset out of my composite, which is strong enough, so you can sit on it and actually swing.
