Tony D. is a wiz when it comes to painting. In this tutorial he demonstrates how easy it is to make an awesome droplet effects using…real water droplets! Perhaps you have seen this on water-ski boards, hockey helmets or any other object and wondered how long it took them to paint those gorgeous drops? The answer is: A couple of seconds! This is one of the few times a painting effect is achieved by using the very same stuff it is supposed to look like, namely water!
Have you ever tried to use a spray bottle or similar to spray directly up or down and found it stopped working? Annoying isn’t it? Well there is a solution that is both cheap and easy, and “DIY Hacks and How Tos” knows all about it. Just use a flexible tube and a couple of nuts (preferably stainless) and your “angular problem” will be no more! Why aren’t all spray cans made this way already?!
Casting metal parts is difficult, needs special sand, crucible, furnace and tools right? Wrong! Unless you absolutely positively need your object to be of professional quality, you may be able to go to your nearest sand beach and make it there! With the simplest tools and resources, Chaîne de coursdedesign made this amazing clip of how to make a simple metal stool. But this solution doesn’t end with stools, most object that doesn’t need a two part mould can be done in this way. The metal in this video is pewter, but we see no reason why metals with higher melting points, like aluminium, couldn’t be used. And best of all, if you use old worn out tools and pots, the only cost is fuel and metal! So gather your friends and have yourself a beach/casting party!
