Week 5: Adding Handrails

Within the Matchstick Stairs Design 1, I felt like there were lots of successful elements. I did feel, however, that there could be more added to make the stairs more like their original design, and more realistic. This is where I added in the hand rails, or banisters, to the stairs. This not only made the stairs look more realistic, but I felt that there was now more structural integrity. Many of the matchsticks are just stuck on the sides, and then to each other, but it works to make the realistic and still hollow design. I plan to spray paint this black, so that it stands out against a background that the camera will pick up as grey.
