Diary of Manufacture: Continued...
This storyboard does not have a description.
I had to use brasso next, a light, golden brown, smelly liquid that was used to polish brass. First I went over my surfaces with the 1200 Wet and Dry paper, just to get rid of any scratches on them. Then I had to fold up a cloth, pour the smallest amount of brasso on it and polish my brass. As I started to rub it, the surfaces went black but when I was instructed to turn over to the clean side of the cloth and polish it without the brasso, my brass was a nice, shiny, gold colour. I did both sides of my brass.
Now that my brasso was done, I had to print of my sticker. I went up to the computer room and went on 2Ddesign so I could design my sticker. I figured drawing a Chinese symbol without any lines to help me would be a challenge, so I pasted my symbol from Google Translate on to the computer and traced round it. I then sent my design to the special printer we were using and wached it etch out my design on to the sticker material we were using.
All I had to do now was transfer my sticker on to my brass. I peeled off the bits of sticker that weren't to be engraved, and transferred my sticker on to my brass piece. I then covered the back with the same sticker material and put it in an acid bath for ten, long minutes. Once it had been taken out, I cleaned it up a bit, using the brasso again to fix any dents and to polish it.
