And because of this, my career as a sculptor began.
If you've tried making these flip flop (or any-one-of-a-million-other-things) holders, then you already know that there is a long straight piece that is left once you cut your wire hanger.
Just out of boredom, I started twisting these extra pieces into different shapes. I wound up creating a couple of shapes that I kinda liked so I took them out to spray paint with the hangers.
|the house piece was kind of a joke after I looked at the other pieces together and they started to look like a sun, a tree and a (rather large) bee.|
Not wanting to waste anything I kept twisting. My favorite original wire hanger sculpture has taken up permanent residence at my workplace.
And thus my career as a sculptor ended.
Now--- because I'm kinda crazy about not wasting things, I have to pose a question to you all, to gauge just how crazy I may or may not be. Please feel free to really answer the question in comments-- I'd actually like to know your answers.
Scenario. You're at the end of a bottle of lotion (with a pump top). Do you:
A. Chuck it out-- you're not going to work that hard for another pump or two of lotion.
B. Unscrew the top and bang out the rest of the lotion out into your palm for a few days until it's all
C. Cut the bottle near the bottom so that you can scoop out any remaining lotion.
I'll tell you that I am a B -- and sometimes I use the long "straw part" of the pump to reach some of the hard to reach lotion in the corners. Am I totally crazy?
One more bonus feature for today-- just because I found this to be really interesting....
I took the photos of my initials sculpture at work on my desk which is gray. The pictures came out kinda dark so I put them in Photoshop to brighten them up a bit. Since I only know the VERY BASICS when it comes to Photoshop, I always try 'Auto Tone' and 'Auto Color' first to see what happens. Here's what happened with my 'Auto Tone' with this one.
Before 'Auto Tone':
After 'Auto Tone':
Interesting. (well to me anyway)
