|Marlin Clay Model 1965|
I'm fascinated by this. Imagine a car covered in mishima, cobalt decoration, slips, sprigs, whatever.
First of all the design/render process itself is amazing. It took some rooting around to find out about the clay body; apparently, it's a clay body with some "rubber" compounds in it are used. It isn't fired, gets steel hard and can take a painted surface. If it's not painted; they use a very thin sheen that is 'burnished' onto the surface. The level of detail and intricacy are mind-boggling.
how in the world did I get on this? I love cars. I was reading about my current car obsession the One-77....couldn't find a good photo of the clay version of the One-77 - but this is what I found.
