Day 2 of project-foam model-building.
|3D computer model of the project|
|1.5 balls (out of 25)|
|Here's 1 side of 1 ball|
|Prototype with 'tiny' balloons|
(the finished project will be held up with meter-wide balloons)
|Fancy little knots|
|Trying to lay out the first row of 4-balls|
For the record - the 4 hours spent on the yoga ball were not unproductive. I bounced along to some happy-sounding-music and helped Z and his partner measure strings and tie decorative knots through countless washers. The project is about a fifth complete - the HUGE (meter-in-diameter) balloons will be arriving in the next 3 days - but can't actually get inserted into the string-frame and inflated until the day before the project needs to be presented. We'll be tying knots until the day the project is due too.
If you've got some sort of penchant for rope-burn or ridiculous projects feel free to come on by and help us measure and tie.
I'm happy to pay in muffins or cookies or pancakes...
