Case Study

The typography was created from a plaster poured into a letter forms cut out of paper, then foiled not to get too much water from the liquid plaster.

After about two days, it was removed from the forms, then sculpted to create cracks, holes (except for bubble holes) and to diversify the surface a little bit.

After that, the type was photographed, then retouched and composed together with the rest of the elements in Photoshop. Some particles were additionally created in 3dsMax. - Pawel Nolbert
