Ever wonder about what to do with all those 3-1/2″ floppy disks that you have taking up space in your office, closet, house? Well here’s yet another idea…and I might say my wildest one yet.
In this first photo, I combined a couple of steps.
- Find a black floppy disk
- Paint the whole front face with black acrylic paint (I put on 3 coats)
- Find something wacky to put in the disk. In this case I had these white coils that were excess from the coils I use to bind my Mandala Coloring Books
- Start gluing the pieces onto the disk
I used duco cement to glue the coils onto the disk; it’s strong and dries clear. I also pulled out some plastic mardi gras beads. I cut individual white beads and put some inside the coils, which are little difficult to see in this photo. In the one, you’ll see them better.
I also cut individual pieces of the purple beads, which are actually little dice…if you look closely you’ll see the ‘5’ side of the second purple bead.
Here’s the finished piece – view #1
Here’s a side view that more clearly shows the white beads and purple die.
How wacky can you make your Da Ta art?
