To start, the kids got into groups of 3-4 to help speed up the taping process. The first layer of tape had to be wrapped sticky side out. The following 2-3 layers were wrapped sticky side in. Once they got a large section wrapped (or when they wrapped too tight and the model started losing circulation), they cut the tape off and taped the form back together. Every student in art club will get to be the model for this project. I cannot wait to see these finished!
Some important lessons we learned today was to not wrap too tightly and to not wrap too many layers or you run out of tape quickly.
