Alebrijes Armatures

Today was a work day in which students kept progressing on their animal armatures. Their are many design challenges with this project, as some students have found.

The battery compartment along with how the animal will stand were challenges today for many students. Also some students were presented with how will the paper mache lay on their proposed armature.

We experimented with some wet newspaper to see how this would lay on the animal. Some students needed discovered that they needed to add more pieces to their armature to develop the head and body of their animal to give it more volume.
