Enjoying the good weather

Did you know that you can get 20,000 coffee stirrers for about $5.00? That does not include shipping, but it’s still a bargain. This piece is made out of probably 15,000 5-1/2″ wooden hot drink stirrers (some spray painted) glued together with Elmer’s white glue. I went through several iterations before settling on this snake-like form. It started out as seven separate pieces, which I dipped in red Plasti-Dip, burned with a kitchen torch, and then sawed apart and reassembled into this. It looks very relaxed, considering. (See detail below. Next time I will try to do all the images in one post!)

    Wonderful! My comment on the previous photo was actually supposed to go on this one, but okay. 🙂
