Dollar Key Tag Project - Part 5 - Finishing- - En Route to Cutting the Coin Slot

Introducing 'Crabby'. 1N1 (almost completed) demo dollar keytag.

Introducing 'Froggy'. 1N2 (almost completed) demo dollar keytag.

Introducing a short Crabby & Froggy story.

'Once upon a time, there was a frog who was jealous of a crab who has many keys. One day while Crabby was sleeping, Froggy went up and snatched two of Crabby's keys. Awoken by the familiar sounds of his keys, Crabby jumped up immediately and gave a good chase. You can finish the story on your own. The end.'

The dollar key-tag is not finished yet. Because term 4 was so ridiculously short + lots of holidays for this year... students were only able to shape their keychain and bind the three layers together. Nevertheless, it still ends up a neat keychain.

Students would have learned that they could layer up acrylic on top of another to create a thicker piece of acrylic. Students also learn about the concept of color combinations since they have to put three layers together and the color should look right on their product. On top of that, students would have learned the following basic making skills: marking out, shaping using the scroll saw, filing using the various types of files, finishing the product using the wet-and-dry paper and polishing the edges with the buffing machine.

I'll be putting up some best design journals from students... so stay tuned...
