My element is bohrium number 107. Bohrium was made in a lab in small amounts. They is currently no known use for it. I made a picture of niels bohr who made the element. I drew the man and changed him to show up well in negative space. I also, used the model of the element we learned to do in bio. Next time, I would add more maybe in lab making the element. I loved printing it onto paper was fun. The process to put the paint on paper was cool.

My element is titanium and the atomic number is 22. It was named titanium after a titan from greek mythology because it’s strong. Now it is mainly used to make aircraft, spacecraft, and missiles because of how strong and dense it is. I chose to do an airplane because it’s made out of titanium. At first I wanted to do a cool airplane until I realized how difficult it was to draw. So then I stuck with a regular one that only shows the front view of an airplane. To make this print I made numerous amount of sketches until I found one that was the best that I could do. Then, I traced the sketch onto tracing paper then put it on the foam. If I had to do this project over again I would chose something that would resemble how strong titanium is instead of doing a plain airplane. The part of the project that I enjoyed the most was finishing and turning in the art because I would worry about how good it was until I realized I did the best I could.
Why is Printmaking Important? - Jimmy Kry
Here is a Three Koi Fountain Fish that look like it took the person awhile to do
The main reason for it because of the different processes that are involved in creating a print through printmaking. A lot of new and talented artists have found their niche in printmaking; it is also very important to know that all the graffiti and street are actually a form of printmaking using stencils
Printmaking is the form and process of applying a work of art to another surface. In printmaking, more than one version of its unique techniques. There are different types of printmaking such as: intaglio, lithography, serigraphy and mono-printing
Intaglio printing is the opposite of relief printing, in that the printing is done from ink that is below the surface of the plate. The design is cut, scratched , or etched into the printing surface or plate, which can be copper, zinc, aluminum, magnesium, plastics, or even coated paper
Lithography, planographic printing process that makes use of the immiscibility of grease and water. In the lithographic process, ink is applied to a grease-treated image on the flat printing surface; nonimage (blank) areas, which hold moisture, repel the lithographic ink
Screen printing is a printing technique whereby a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a substrate, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil. It is also known as silk-screen, screen, serigraphy, and serigraph printing
Monoprinting is a form of printmaking that has lines or images that can only be made once, unlike most printmaking, there are multiple originals. Examples of standard printmaking techniques which can be used to make monoprints

What is your element? Name and atomic number
My element is Selenium. The atomic number is 34.
Tell the reader about your element, history, function/use and so on.
Selenium was discovered in 1817. It is a nonmetal element that is used in supplements, dandruff products, and it is also used in glass. Some people have a selenium deficiency, for which they take a selenium pill or supplement.
How did you get the idea for the imagery you chose?
Selenium is named after, Selene, the greek goddess of the moon. I chose to make my image the moon, because it was connected while not being too obvious.
What process did you go through to make this print?
I designed my idea, and put it on tracing paper. Once it was on the tracing paper I put it on the block using pressure. I then made the prints by rolling on ink and pressing them onto paper using a wooden spoon. I carefully pulled the paper away, let it dry and matted it.
What would you do differently if you did this print a second time?
I would make my atomic number and symbol easier to see, as they are a little blurred
What part of the project did you enjoy the most? Describe the step and what you liked so much about it.
We had to think of ideas for our print and I really liked making the concept and sketching out my ideas, I really like drawing so it was fun to think of new ideas and hash them out.
