Animal Project

  • 3D Animal Model Requirements
    Due Date: May 15, 2014
    • Should be as realistic as possible
    • Must be homemade - nothing corporately manufactured
    • Approximate size - it would be nice if it fit into a standard-sized paper ream box (about 23 in x 9 in x 12 in) or smaller. It can be larger, if necessary, but please, nothing double the size! 
    • Materials could include foam, paper mache, or clay (but remember that clay is heavy and can crack when it dries), cardboard, paint, and anything else that you can think of to construct your animal.
