Veolia Germany has commissioned me to create a Berliner Bear sculpture out of recycled plastic flakes - as a gift for a co-worker. This sounds easy, but the challenge was, which glue holds it all together? Not every glue: works with different types of plastic (especially recycled ones), dries fast, stays transparent and is easy to use.
After several tests we found a solution: A special superglue and acrylic gel. We had a limited amount of time. However, thanks to the Modeling Artist Sana Schönle and help of Gosia Borowiec and Barbi Mlczoch (Cosmopola), we were able to finish the sculpture on time.
