Toilet Making

Early prototype 4

Wednesday and Thursday this week the prototyping continued.

This time the epoxy resin was colored to make the surface more evenly, but the results are not satisfying. For future prototypes it is nicer to leave the natural look of the jute resin combination.

The transparent resin shows the inner jute and gives an impression about the production and makes it easier to understand the material.

The laminating of the lid was without complications. We used 2 layers of jute fiber (jute weight = 305g per meter). It is one layer less than for the main pot and the seat, since it will not be stressed like the other parts. The lid needs to close the pot and be lightweight for easy handling.
