The other night my hands got bored as I watched TV so I got this old pringles tin and made it unrecognisable.
First I cut it into 3 uneven slices. Put bottoms on the ones that ended up bottomless. I did a couple of layers of papier mache to strengthen them.
I wanted it to say something, so I found synonyms for the word ‘write’ and printed them out in different sizes.
By way of aging the paper, I used a candle and slightly browned it.
Note: Browning paper is a tricky business… there’s a fine line between browning and flaming.
After dancing about the kitchen with a piece of paper rapidly turning to ash in my hands, I kinda liked the burned edges.
Note (again): After a certain point, blowing on a flame doesn’t put it out. It encourages it.
