BOARD UPDATE –
Emma’s 2 hour lesson – I got annoyed with soldering basically.
I added this vine I found in my hedge but no doubt it will be all dead by now so I guess I will have to get some out of my garden fresh for on the day!
I also added some dead grass which is wedged in underneath a section that I chiseled out but did not break off the board.
I rubbed it in some soil to make it a bit more dirty but when my dad was hammering another nail in it all came off! Haha… so I will have to rub it about again I spose. But I’m hoping my apple will look nice, clean and shiny in contrast to the (fake)old, tatty and filthy backboard. All I have to figure out now is how to attach it… oh I DO like to make things hard for myself 🙁
To attach it to my backboard I drilled 2 holes in my board(quite deep), inserted some wire (sharpening the ends to points) and then slowly pressed the apple into place. I was SO worried I was going to press too hard or something and my apple would just split in two halves, but it didn’t thankfully.
I cut a leaf and stalk out of some green acrylic plastic and inserted it into the top of the apple.
Ta-da! It’s finished!
I’m quite pleased with how its turned out… apart from how the words are stuck into the apple… it looks a bit pants from some angles… would want to try and press them in further but don’t want to split my apple this late!
