final outcome

I made the final model for the Encourage Medal from styrene and high density foam covered in copper leaf. The bottom part of the medal pulls out to reveal the screen with a message to the explorer. The main body of the medal, made from the styrene will display an 'FM' lit up symbol to show that a message has been received.
To finish the model, I made packaging. I had pieces of leather and silk embroidered with 'Fortnum & Mason' then sewed the leather together to make a pouch. The piece of silk acts as an extra luxury to wrap around the medal. There is also a small instruction manual bound in leather explaining simply how the product works.
