- Put a small amount of Crayola Washable Glue on the end of a tetrahedron and hold it in place for a few seconds until it sticks.
- Look at your sculpture from all directions to see how the spaces and shapes move your eye around and through the whole piece.

- Give your sculpture a title.
- Write the title on a card and place it with the sculpture.
