Henry Moore Sculptures

Currently for my art project, I'm looking at metal and ways to create a metal finish on paper... I have tried using real sheet metal- but to damage it and make it appear to rust and have weathered is quite difficult... so having been advised to look at Henry Moore, I have, and the sculptures he created are really cool. They are mostly heavily stylised to abstract, and the shapes and forms are extremely interesting.

I am, however, looking at the surface of the metal, and the way that nature and weather has interacted with it causing it to look the way it is. I definitely think it would not be as interesting had the surface not been weathered and rusted... so I shall try and take inspiration from his work to recreate some similar looking surfaces...

Exam in three weeks! Ahh!
