Tungsten Print

  1. What is your element? Name and atomic number

My element is Tungsten. The number is 74.

  1. Tell the reader about your element, history, function/use and so on.

Tungsten was first discovered by two brothers name Juan Jose and Fausto Elhuyar when they were living in Swedin. Since tungsten is heavy, they named it tungsten because it means heavy stone in German. It was made out of minerals and tin.

  1. How did you get the idea for the imagery you chose?

As I was doing research for tungsten, I came across diamonds because when diamonds were first discovered, it was heavy. So that’s when I started to draw diamond as my imagery.

  1. What process did you go through to make this print?

There was a lot of process when doing this print. The first process was that drawing the diamond was hard because I have to make it perfectly semetrical. Then when it was time for printing, it was easy because there was no need to turn it backwards. While drawing it on the foam, the only thing that need to be backward was the number and the letter. While printing it, I evenly rolled the paint and then rolled it to the foam. After that, I layed a paper on top of it and then evenly rubbed it on to the paper. After that, your picture will be perfect.

  1. What would you do differently if you did this print a second time?

I would try and draw another picture that is similar to tungsten

  1. What part of the project did you enjoy the most? Describe the step and what you liked so much about it.

The part that i really enjoy most was printing it on paper. I enjoyed this because I get to roll the paint evenly and then stamp it on to the foam. After I rolled it on to the foam, i stamped it on to a blank sheet of paper and then received a final product.
