'Once again 4D modelshop and the colleges taking part have come together with a truly excellent show of graduating work .. unique, inspiring as ever and unmissable .. if one could make that single June 9th! I could have easily spent a week of my life there and considered it both a lot of fun and a valuable education, especially if it included the chance to talk more properly to the exhibitors who are always so approachable!'
David Neat (Teacher & author of Model Making: Material and Methods)

BEST USE OF CREATIVE MATERIALS

Niamh Lennon (University of Bolton)

Sponsored by 4D modelshop

We were really pleased to give Niamh our award this year. It is the first year for this category and we wanted the winner to show a use of a commonly used material we hadn't seen before.

We shortlisted two candidates for the award, Niamh and Ben Goss from the University of Hertfordshire, but Niamh just pipped it for the way her tail performed underwater.

The tail is made entirely from silicone - both Dragon Skin 10 and Pro-Gel 10. There is a polyurethane mono-fin inside the fluke fin.

It is painted with Psycho Paint and Sil-Pigs from Smooth On and Createx Pearlescent Paints.
