My element was Iron. It has atomic number 26. Iron has been for a long time. People say it has been around since 3000 B.C. No one knows who discovered iron. Many people say that it came down on a meteor. Iron is used to manufacture steel and civil engineering. In the human body, iron is essential for blood production. I chose to make this design because of the discovery of iron. It came down in a meteor, so I drew meteors coming to earth with iron in them. To make this print, I first had to make sketches. Then, I had to trace this design on a piece of tracing paper. When is was time to put it on foam, I flipped the tracing paper so it would be backwards on the plate. I pressed my pencil into the paper and traced my design. When I actually printed, I rolled the ink onto my plate evenly and pressed it into my paper. It took a few times to get it perfect, but I eventually got the perfect print. If I were to do this project again, I would make my design have more depth. Looking at it now, it is a little flat and adding more depth would make this more interesting. My favorite part of this project was printing. It was fun to see my final product. The big reveal after you peeled back the paper was really fun. Overall, I loved this project and would do it again.
