The element that I did was Fluorine and its atomic number is 9. Fluorine was discovered in 1529 and in 1810 fluorine became an element on the periodic table and the person who discovered fluorine was Henri Moissan. What fluorine is used for is toothpaste to brush our teeth and sodium fluoride is used in water to prevent dental cavities. How I got the ideas of having teeth holding a toothbrush is I looked up pictures to give me ideas of what to draw and so I thought of having teeth holding a toothbrush and putting their thumbs up was a nice idea.
How I did this process was first I drew my picture on the styrofoam and then I painted styrofoam with the color I picked. After that I put down the side with the paint on a blank paper and put another piece of blank paper on the top of it and got a spoon to have the paint print on the paper. Once I felt like it was printed I took the styrofoam plate off and then that's when it prints. Something I would've done differently to make sure it prints is to actually make sure it print good enough so everything can be on the paper. The part of the project that I enjoy the most the painting part because it was fun to print the picture on another paper.
