For our final artefact we decided on the image of the teeth floating in a Starbucks cup. This meant I got a chance to use clay again (which I was super happy about) to make the teeth, and I’m really happy with how they turned out, even if it is incredibly creepy.
I then made a fake top within the cup using cardboard and a lot of hot glue so that the clay teeth wouldn’t sink when we put coffee in them, and was kinda incredibly grossed out with how this went as teeth make me really uncomfortable..
Then we went in to Photoshop and edited this image so it was more simple and could be made in to stickers to put around town! After printing it however, I felt it was too elaborate still so drew a very simple version of it and scanned it to be printed for the final stickers.
We discovered however that nowhere in town prints stickers, so we had to do it the old fashioned way and just cut them out and put them around town instead, which while more time consuming gave us a chance to clear our heads and have a laugh for a while…
We even got to mess with Conánn a wee bit while making sure we wouldn’t get in too much trouble…
Me: Conánn, does it matter if our artefact is completely legal or not?
Conánn: What do you mean?
We were then told to be discreet or Photoshop them in.. We went for the first option.
