Element Print Project 2011

My element is gallium. It's atomic number is 31 and atomic mass is 69.723. Gallium is a metal.

Gallium is used as substitute for mercury in a thermometer. It is used in laser diodes and creating mirrors. 

I came up with the idea of gallium melting in your hand, because gallium melts around body temperature. I had to research what gallium is used for, and what it is to find out what the print is going to be. The project was really creative. I like how you have to find which print you're going to make by looking up the element.

I would make the hand differently, and place the element symbol somewhere else on the print.
