So I decided that the biscuit- tin- watches was a cool project and made some more:
But there is another project that I really want to do with these tins, that actually was the original idea. But for that, I will need at least 5 and right now I have none!!!! Just need to be patient and wait until I have collected enough. And that is really not one of my strong sides......
So, I've got a hang up on biscuit tins.......It will probably get very bad. I can feel the craving building up in my body just by writing "biscuit tin".... I think that one of the reasons is that I can take some of the metal waste that they just trow away and do something with it. Here in Israel they are quite good at recycling plastic bottles but cans, glass and other metals, they just throw away with all the rest of the garbage. Which of course is totally CRAZY!!!!
I tried another method today on the biscuit tin clock. I spray painted an ugly tin completely white and when it had dried, I put a crocheted small tablecloth (also called doily) over it and sprayed it again Ultra-pink.
It was just for fun and now I can't actually decide if it´s still ugly or kind of cool?
What do you think?
Both me and Caroline have a fetish for old biscuit tins.You can find them everywhere in our houses, in all different sizes and colours. For me they are not as holy as they are for C, and I have been thinking for a while what you can use them for - more than just a tin.
One day, I found a clock face in a store, came home and put it inside one of my favorite tins and it´s now hanging on my wall. Maybe Caroline will forgive me one day for making a hole in the tin but probably she won't...
