Do you have time to remake it? If not your art teacher should understand. She was the one who suggested you soak them in water.
This was OP's fault. I'm assuming this sculpture is made of a clay considering the advice from the teacher. OP obviously let it soak for far too long because clay doesn't just dissolve once it touches water. Then again, I suppose it could also just not be clay. It was just the scenario that I thought of.
What the teacher probably meant was for OP to get it wet not drown it in water. Most anything I can think of right now that could be stuck back together by dunking In water wouldn't dissolve immediately it would have to be left in running water for a while. Maybe my memory is just bad. Either way it's OP's fault for not know the properties of the material being worked with, it's not the art teachers fault for assuming trying to give helpfull advice.
I just had two projects I need to pass my ceramics class explode because someone else's project blew up in the kiln
Ummmm... How long did you leave them In water exactly...?? You Germans and you're beer... Jay Kay jay Kay, I zeh Germans!
