Haha, great use of a film line :P. Which film is it from? *ponders*
It is official, I have to re-make my medal. You see, for our very first project this year we had to make a medal. Mine was a violin one inspired by Elliot Minor (I promise you, I’m not obsessed, ha). It took about 4 to 5 weeks to do what I could. I didn’t finish it but that was okay because I could complete it after assessment, before it was entered into the BAMS competition. That’s what I thought…
Unfortunately mine was stolen :(. One of my classmates tried helping me find it but no look. The tutors, cleaners were even on the look out – still no luck. I went weeks thinking I wouldn’t have to bother with it. Then…today I get told to make another one so I can enter something into the competition. I think I only have a day to do it all (tomorrow). *Sighs* Worst luck I’ve had. The good thing is the teacher’s going to help me finish it and I can make this one even better :). The difference would be instead of going straight onto metal, I’ll have to use wax *ah*.
I do have one question for the thief. Why, why would you want to steal it? It wasn’t made well, the polishing and finishing was rubbish, the soldering lines weren’t clean. The overall medal was disgraceful. Why would you want to steal that? No one in their right mind would have stolen that medal in the condition it was left. Not even me and I made it. :P
What good has come from this?
- I get to make this medal better;
- This one gets to be cast in silver. The other one is brass (I don’t have to pay for brass, thankfully);
- Even the worst of my work must be pretty good *shrugs* :P;
- This is the time to test myself under pressure, which will be good practise.
