Proxxon Power Tools

I love making Art out of junk.  This project was almost completely Free for me to make

While out for a walk I found the front to a dart board

cut it into two pieces
 I used the center for this project, but I see lots of great ideas for the other part

Love my Fiskars cutters

I wired a Light socket to the center

Got my Proxxon Drill Press out and a metal drill bit

Started to drill hole in all of my silverware

Super easy to do with My Proxxon Power Tools 

I added fishing line to each fork and spoon

Made my own rings from Wire

Add some chain to the top to hang from the ceiling 
added a bulb and it's done

Increasing my ability

I just love to learn NEW Techniques

This week I have been playing with all kinda new products and some old ones.  

This one is a painting done with just PanPastels and just a little soft Pastels
it's far from perfect, but I had a lot of fun learn this new skill

NOW this one.  I just love the way it turned out. I plan on show this technique off on my Tuesday night show in about a week or so.  This one is made with Acrylic Paints. Charcoal, and Soft Pastels.

Thanks for stopping by

Birds of a feature

This Girls love her POWER tools..  Most of the power tools I use in my studio are from Proxxon - these are Mini Power tools with the power of the big guys, but they are perfect for the home studio. 

Here is the top of my mobile - I used stick from my yard. 
Use my crop saw to cut the sticks and then my Drill press to drill hole at the end of each stick  
Each bird was made different.  I start all of them with Music paper glued onto the chipboard.  then I just had fun, paint, Gelatos, Prima Flowers and real feathers

thanks for stopping by my blog - please LIKE the Proxxon Facebook page for me and tell them I sent you

Thanks again.  have a great day.....
