Final Piece: Day 2

Safety

  • Craft knife- I was careful to avoid my hands and always cut towards me to avoid hurting myself
  • Hot Glue Gun- I made sure my hands were out of the way when applying the hot glue to the surface, and I waited until the glue had cooled to touch and move the objects

Focusing first on my skirt, I used the sewing machine to sew around the mountain and attach a drawing of a temple I had done on a separate piece of fabric to go on top of the mountain. I then focused on the arrow and sheath part of the design, painting some dowelling I had brought from a D.I.Y shop gold, embossing and cutting out arrow tips and painting the cardboard for the sheath. I used a hot glue gun to attach the metal tips to the dowelling and make a pouch for the arrows to sit in when they are in the cardboard sheath. I made a template of the arrow tip inspired by arrows in Ancient Greek art, to trace around on the metal before embossing, so that all my arrow tips were matching.
