Being prone to tipping tiny paint tins over i made myself a little box that support them 11 years ago,for when i am working with enamel paints. However it has gone missing. Yes today was suposed to be enamel paint day on the foundry._______________ So i made another one up.
Here are a few photo`s
An old off-cut. I throw nothing away.
The tiny pieces to make up the box have been cut out.
The tin fits in tight and turning it makes for a nice neat fit.
Two sides have been stuck on,and little bracket supports to strengthen the top and sides have been added.
The box is formed and the two cards that make up the base are stuck together. The base is left for 5 minutes and than a heavy book is placed onto it. This proscedure avoids the two parts from slipping out of place.
10 minutes later the box is glued into place,and left for a few minutes than the book is placed on top. This is an incredibly strong tiny structure.
It took 11 years or more to paint the other missing box,with splashes and blobs of colorful paint.
So now i Have another that makes it impossible for me to overturn stuff ,so that`s good.
It even supports the tin tight when paint levels are low.
If my other tiny box turns up with a cheeky grin after playing Hide & Seek,i will be so glad to see it because it has all that colorful character charm to it,and fits snug-like upon my little painting table. BB
