11: Butterfly

Posted on Oct 18, 2011 by in 432

Beautiful and graceful, varied and enchanting, small but approachable, butterflies lead you to the sunny side of life.

The October contest is to build a wide winged insect, focusing more on the wings than the insect part.

Use up to a total of 432 magnet spheres, of any brand, to to create a sculpture or 2d design of a butterfly. This is the second contest that we’ve had that has no brand restrictions, so have fun with it.

As usual, the judges will be your peers. First place gets two free zen sets, second place one free set. Another thing to remember is that this is a photography contest as much as a magneteering contest. Everything you submit goes to the public domain. Last but not least, we may ask for more pictures to confirm that no more than 432 magnets were used. And having fun is the most important requirement. Deadline is the end of October, voting will last until Nov 10th. Remember: Use not your bright reflective flash, but instead the self-timer and a stand.
