My element was Nitrogen. Nitrogens number is the number seven. Nitrogen has a rich history and many interesting facts. Nitrogen was discovered by Daniel Rutherford in 1772. Being the fifth most abundant element in the universe, Nitrogen has many uses. Nitrogen helps create amonia, fertilizers and it’s a affordable freezing agent.
My imagery was the planet Venus. I chose this because Venus had been proven to some amount of nitrogen in its atmosphere. My process for making this was pretty simple. I paper sketch and transferred it into the plate (making sure it was reverse). After that I rolled the ink on the plate until I heard the tacky sound. Finally I put it on paper. If I could redo this, I would have put more depth into the plate. I loved when I got to see my finished product. I just felt really proud of it.
