Recuerdo que mi padre me ayudó a buscar plantas, secarlas y a hacer la clasificación con sus libros.
...Mientras realizaba esta escena, pensaba en ambos, con un inmenso cariño, y por extensión, pensaba en los buenos profesores que he tenido, a si que a todos ellos va dedicada esta pequeñez.
When I was in the first course of the secondary school, One of the best teachers that I ever have,Francisco Teixidó, the teacher of Natural Sciences asked us to make an herbarium.
I remember my father helping me to find plants, dry them and make the classify with his books.
...While I was doing this scene, I've being thinking on both with great affection and additionally, I was thinking on all the good teachers I have had, thus I dedicate this smallness to all them.
He tratado cada superficie de forma distinta, una pared lleva ladrillos hechos mediante una plantilla y masilla plástica tapa grietas, manchados con cera y sombras de ojos.
To make this scene, I used three MDF boards of 6mm thick, assembled with little sticks..Each surface has a different finished , a wall with bricks made using a template and wall putty cover colored with wax and eye shadows.
I dyed first in oak and them in ebony to get a dark but warm colored wood.
I made the top of a wall with wood too, and on the oder side of the scene I also made an open shelf.
To make the roof , I used a peace of hard cardboard. One side covered with strips of wood, and the other side with simulated slate tiles. Cardboard painted using a sponge.
The table is very sanded and bleached ( paint first with white acrilic and clean before it dry)
En pequeñas carpetas de papel de estraza marrón, colocamos una cartulina con la planta seca. En la parte inferior una pequeña ficha con su nombre científico, descripción y usos. Finalmente una hoja de papel de seda protege a la planta dentro de la carpeta.
La cesta donde está el herbario está hecha con malla metálica pintada con acrílicos.
To make the herbal plants, I used some cutters and tissue paper in different colors.
In brown paper folders we put the dried plant glued on a cardboard, at the bottom of it small label with the plant scientific name, description and uses. Finally a sheet of tissue paper protects the plant inside the folder.
The basket where the herbarium rests is made with metal mesh painted with acrylics.
The trunk is made of balsa wood in different thicknesses.
To make the cover, I dyed the wood and when it was still wet, I tied it to a thick round stick and let it dry. The hinge is a piece of cloth, and the interior is lined with miniature newspapers.
The press to dry the plants is made with two boards, and two straps. Inside, between the boards, newspapers envelop the plants.
De modo que para esos ejemplares, he utilizado infinidad de botes de cristal rellenos con musgo, flores secas, cortezas, arena, conchas, semillas, plantas de acuario y para hacer el líqudo he usado resina de cristal de dos componentes.
But in a herbarium, there is not only dried plants, there are also seeds, fruits, bark, wood samples plants preserved in preservative liquids, aquatic plants, fossils, fungi, plants ...
So I used to these specimens, some glass jars filled with moss, dried flowers, bark, sand, shells, seeds, aquarium plants, etc. The liquid is cristal resin.
Finally, I made the chair by soldering wire, I made some books with pieces of leather...
..a picture with the nerve skeleton of a leaf, some fresh flowers in a jar, a pestle and a mortar, some pictures...
...dried flowers and plants hanging from the ceiling and the morocan lamps, wich tutorial is here,..
