Ooooh, how did you make the little metal plate?
It's just a little scrap of cardboard covered in aluminum foil. I rubbed a bit of black paint over it to show off the writing.I was going to type it up on the typewriter but we haven't got a ribbon for it yet.
If you haven't already, you can get typewriter ribbon at Staples for four or five bucks (or at least you could when I got my typewriter back in '05).Total ripoff, considering I got the typewriter for only $2 at a garage sale! And here we thought it started with Injet printers!I went through a phase where I typed up my blog entries and scanned them. Unfortunately that was also when my entries tended to be about pretty inane stuff. Aluminium foil on cardboard--great effect!- RG>
What did you use to glue all of the pieces and the light bulb to the thermos top? I am starting a project involving gluing bolts and pieces of metal to a metal surface and not sure how to go about doing it. Thanks
Because it was going to sit on display and didn't need to be very strong I just used a glue gun to stick it all together.A two-part epoxy would be a much safer bet if you want your metal bits to stay together.
