First post of the semester (Microcosm Spring 2010)

I have started having issues with troublesome the material assigned to me....I started out forming it through presses, and after seeing a previous example done a year and a half ago I decided to avoid extruding Spackle.

The question that I decided to focus on was "how can Spackle hold light?" (its a window installation after all) I have noticed is that when Spackle is thin enough, it can glow when the light hits it. The light then also shows imperfections in the Spackle compound I have created.

here are some images from my testing phase.
