The challenge that faced our heroes was of material, the world presented plentiful treasures with a variety of desirable properties. Among them included trace paper, thin plexi, chipboard, foam, mylar, acetate and, spandex. The trace paper provided a good way to test the reactions of the patterns but it could not hold up to too much force. The plexi, mylar and chipboard all broke under force. The Spandex allowed movement but no rigidity. This was solved by layering it with acetate which gave it structure while allowing movement. *kthx* _Laura and Jess!
