Rotating organizer for paints.
Jars, tubes, and bottles with paint … A lot and in the heap. Find the right one, this means digging out the entire drawer of the table (or you can not find)
it … Let’s try to put all this chaos in order, and even anoint it-paint it from the heart. I’ve long wanted to try it.
The idea began with this old pencil
A bearing was found on its bottom.
If the pencil case is not found, then without any problems you can buy a swivel plate. So, in the shop, I bought round wooden workpieces for watches (a store for needlework in walking distance is an eternal temptation. Two circles – 30 cm in diameter, four – with a diameter of 25 cm, three “bars for carving” with a length of 15 cm, and two wooden pencils (brushes will also need to live somewhere).
Bars on the edges a little-rounded and one bar sawed in half. She covered all this stuff with a dark stain in the direction of the wood fibers.
In order for the bearing balls to rotate more fun, glue one of the boards onto the glue. Moment-mounting of plastic from the lid from a disposable food container, it is smooth and durable. This circle will be the basis of the organizer.
Probably there are a lot of techniques of multilayer staining, but I decided to just use the principle of the old fence.I found three blue colors from those that do not mind. One of them gave lilac and was rejected, the second glossy. I do not need gloss and I mixed this paint with matting paste.
So, first a dark blue paint on the entire surface (do not forget that you need to paint strictly in the direction of the wood fibers. So we paint all the blanks.
I wanted to take on the second blue paint, lighter but remembered the old fence in time. We will assume that the next time they decided to make it light. Therefore I squeezed out two light colors at the same time and smeared them with a sponge without reaching the edges of the blanks (the edges “peeled off from time”).
From time … yes, it means that craquelure will not be superfluous. I found a one-component.
The next owners of the hypothetical fence decided to go back to blue and I painted a light blue paint over the craquelure.
Again I did not reach the edges of the blanks. Crackles cracked.
In general, it almost suits, but as without your favorite turquoise? Spent places almost dry sponge.
And once again went through a light paint, barely touching almost a dry sponge and immediately removing the surplus with a damp napkin.
Old means old! Without dirt, not do. This is my favorite American “dirt”. It is gray and brown, both
At this stage, I decided to add my future tower of stories, so that the jars do not hide behind each other. For this purpose, a box of candy came perfectly (cherry in chocolate was very tasty) Soldering iron cut openings to the size of bars (first tried to scrape a nail, but this is a very long-playing process and the plastic began to crack). I coped with the soldering iron for five minutes.
Has painted both halves of a box as well as wooden preparations, only without stain. All parts are covered with frosted acrylic lacquer.
Well, that’s before the assembly got. It will take a glue Moment-mounting and self-tapping screws with washers.
Scheme assembly (starting from the bottom, “catwalks” just put on bars).
The lower tiers I made from double blanks, as the paints are heavy, and the plates seemed to me flimsy. For tubes of diameter, twisted “crocodiles” for curtains, which fixed on screws with ringlets. I do not know what they
are called, they were in the store in the department for making jewelry.
Well, that’s it, the rotating organizer is ready and you can celebrate the housewarming of my colors.
Thank you for attention!
