Paper Dress

I thought I would share with you a project I have been working on. With my job I get given all types of interesting, and some times difficult projects. This one particular one was making a paper dress, inspired by the amazing garnets that were all the rage in the 1960s ( you can read a little about them here). After a couple of trials and testing different papers it was decided that lithography paper (the cheapest one, it turns out at 30 cents a sheet) did the job perfectly. Now we just have to wait to see what the students do with it. Have you ever been given some interesting and quite difficult?
