In my project, I tried to recreate what severe arthritis in the hands may look like. I used scar putty and red body paint to make the knuckles inflamed and larger to appear swollen. I also used a toothpick to create the wrinkle groves that are present when our fingers are straightened. My main focus was to bring to light just how serious of a disease arthritis is. I wanted to state what treatment options are available to people who suffer from arthritis. Lastly, I wanted to show the symptoms and how the disease is obtained. In the photos, you can see that my fingers are curled and wont straighten, this is because with arthritis, your joints do not move like they used to and this causes mobility problems. I also wish to clarify that while there are different types of arthritis like osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Arthritis is an umbrella term used to encompass all the different types of arthritis. Note: I wish to say that the scar putty became crumbly when exposed to extreme heat and that is why it is not sticking completely in the photos.
