The spray can, that is.
In a Shapeways order before Christmas (how could I not redirect some of my grocery budget when shipping was free?) I bought a milk crate. And when I was wondering what today's Finish it off Friday challenge would be I remembered this photo I took at Lyneham shops a couple of months ago and instagrammed:
and the 3D-printed spray paint can kit I bought at last year's AMEA Convention:I figured it would be a suitably gentle return to Finish it off Friday.
So I spray painted the cans silver.
Removed the lids from their printing base (a nasty job, which was followed by much sanding to try and make the lid tops flat.)
I spray painted the lids various colours.
And when I'd removed the cans from their printing base and sanded them, came up with an ingenious solution to hold them steady while painting the bases...
And in case you're beady-eyed enough to notice that there were four spray cans in the kit and only three in the scene, this is what I did with the missing one:Yes, I know the label is a bit dodgy but I couldn't be bothered creating a better one from scratch. Perhaps I'll do that later today. Or perhaps I'll collapse on the sofa with a book and a glass of wine...
