A sample of our finished chess men
Last week, 5C moulded their 'Lewis-Style' Chessmen from clay, we have now painted our pieces. Some of us learnt the importance of cross hatching and joining pieces together carefully, but mostly our chessmen are in one piece.
We decided to decorate them with paint, unlike the originals which were carved from ivory.
For the rest of the week, we will be making another chess set- this time drawing and making nets of different 3D shapes....WATCH THIS SPACE!
