Recycling...!!! My most favourite art work... I mean the way you transform PRACTICALLY a piece of garbage... even you a week before that transformation wouldn't have imagined it this way :') Talk about magic of art :')
Now... don't judge me when i tell you i collect a hell lot of crap. Literally. So much that my sister in law, Fatima, calls me a "KABARIA" (ragman). And i am sort of proud of it :D we were talking about magic right? You'd have a beautiful piece and lessening the pollution at the same time :) totally worth it ;)
As the title reveals, i am going to show you my almost 3 years old project and dude you have no idea what all i went through just to get this done.
My mommy would have killed me if she saw a tire rolling in my home at that time and luckily when i got obsessed with this project, my mom travelled. And my daddy, my super man, despite of giving me my-daughter-needs-a-doctor look, was generous enough to take me to a garage's junk to select my choice of tire.
Sadly this project being an old one wont be having fancy and detailed pictures
Here is the supplies list:
a tire... (i dont know why i have an awkward smile on my face mentioning this:p )
Left over paint
golden spray paint (do i have to mention it in every post :D i love it and u know that!)
glass or mirror
A piece of thick and hard thermacole to close the bottom.
1.Paintttttt!!! Paint that tire :D I painted it all green, then spray painted gold.
2.Measure the hole of tire and cut your thermacole an inch bigger than the measured size. I had this disposable plastic dish. Use silicone to stick it on the inside of the hole.
4. Now what i did in this step was i gave the dish's cover a tufted look using some sponge cut in round. If you get lucking enough to find something similar then just use clear glass at your table top, else use a mirror.
The tufted dish top. I centred it with a ribbon to be used when i need to pull it out.
centred it with a rose to hide the ribbon.Fished product:
And thissss is my till date mostttt favourite project.
Did i mention "magic" earlier? :DPlease tell me that you too are in love with it and its exciting enough to make your eyes wonder on every side of road in the search of an old used tires the next time you go out. Please tell me that :p
Some scientific info for my worried friends.
The old tires are totally safe to work with and have it indoor. No toxic gases trapped it because it has gone through so much pressure while its use that it gets totally oxidized and has no harmful stuff left with in.
I always research before starting task, because i love myself alot :p
Share your projects pictures on my fb wall, that page is totally dedicated to you :)
