Element Project 2011

My element is Manganese, number 25 on the periodic table. Manganese is fused with other medals to increase their durability and to help them keep a polish. This is because manganese is an extremely hard metal and does not scratch easily. It is also used to help fuse other metals together.
My design is a shield with two arrows crossing it. The arrows represent manganese's ability to fuse other elements, and the shield represents its durability. To take My project to the final print I redesigned the arrows to be double headed. so they point in all directions.
I personally like my final product, I feel the design transferred well and is interesting to look at.
If I did this project again I would have made my design smaller so that you could tell what is is more easily.
