A METHOD ABOUT THE ARTIFACT DESIGN FOR INDOOR SURFACE: SILICONE MOLD TECHNOLOGY
It is possible to say that the structures, which materials are used with nominative in today’s technology, repeat themselves in variety of structure. Concrete mass which are exposed the holes of bolt mold, metal surfaces which are protected of view oxidized, wood plaques impregnated for avoid only the conditions of outdoor are frequently used in architecture, either indoor or outdoor, due to their natural appearances.
The designers, who adopted the approach of using materials in their natural states, tend to make difference in about structures in this repetition and try several technics. Approaches of usage by giving texture or forming pattern to surfaces of materials of concrete, plaster, etc., which are used pouring into molds pre-prepared, can give an example for those technics.
It’s necessary to shear or contuse the certain regions of concrete surface to create pattern and texture on concrete out of the mold, and these operations create loss of time and energy in implementation process.
Another method of forming pattern and texture on concrete surface is to use the special-designed molds in casting process. It is taken a mold by forming model with the materials like clay, mud, plastilin, which can be shaped easily and pouring concrete to these molds, intended texture on the surface of concrete out of the mold is obtained.
In this study, different methods about the forming texture on the surface of concrete are obtained, starting from the traditional molding stage to silicone mold technology. Production method and process of texture, which are become different from standard operations and can be premeditated for the texture obtained are examined with positive and negative sides as main subject of the study.
