For this week, I decided to make a trophy. Merav and Austin were extremely helpful.
Using the roland mill was a complete waste of time as it took forever waiting in line
and malfunctioned all the time. I highly recommended
that the roland mill is not suggested to ues next year.
I eventually decided to use the shopbut to make the intial mold.
Here are the initial pictures of my design files.

After that, I had to make the silicon mixture. I used the oovoo 25. The ta told
us all these tips such as pouring slowly and having a 50-50 mix and I didn't really
follow that, but it turned out ok. I think also it is better to be safe and make
extra material as it is extremely annoying to have to mix more stuff.
Finally, I made the actual product. I used hydrostone. I used clamps to put the pieces together. A good tipe
was to not apply the clamps directly to the pieces but use the wood to put pressure to it. The final product came
out pretty good.
