estudyante redux

back to school in 3….2….1….

Walk like an Egyptian 16 September 2009

Filed under: chair,furniture,miniature — Sara @ 16:19

For ID114, each student was assigned a style/period in Western furniture history. We are to make a miniature chair and its corresponding interior for an Exhibit on the 23rd. I made mine between the 12th to 16th of September, because we had to have our work checked by 11:30 on the 16th.

I CRAMMED! Well, unintentionally, at least. I was actually enjoying the activity because I’ve always loved making scaled models in Arki. That was the highlight of every semester for me. That’s also one of the reasons why I made a miniature for thesis even though it wasn’t required. I took a lot of photos while I worked and posted them online since I was so happy with what I was doing, especially the chair.

I must’ve been enjoying too much that I wasn’t able to manage my time so well, and I ended up working until the very last minute. Thankfully I wasn’t penalized for arriving at school a few minutes past the due time. I had my work checked and got my comments for improvement which I should work on before the class begins the setup for the exhibit next week. Whew!

Painted and almost ready to go~ Final step is a coat of clear laquer for shininess (of which I had a little accident involving a clogged spray paint can, a face where the can was pointed at, and a stupid finger that pressed on the trigger)
