365 Day 167

busy work...but done, yay!

In between errands today and this evening I made the 100 (plus about 10 extra) twisted wire hangers for the backs of the Penciled In blocks that Juana Moore and I collaborate on for our Art-o-mat series.


three colors of doubled over and twisted 24-gauge wire in three colors...red, black and green






















t style="font-style: italic;">they look pretty cool all piled together






The next thing I need to do with the hangers is to decide if I will affix them with tiny copper colored tacks (as in past series) or if I will give the heavy duty staple gun a go this time. Either way, I need to cut the length down and make little loops at the ends.




the spools of wire, pen that I wrap the wire around to make the loop, cutter and pliers...and the 100+ completed hangers





After this, I need to paint the edges of the blocks for a more finished look.

I still need to print out the main labels and the end labels for the boxes.

Then Juana and I sign the backs and pack them into the boxes and wrap them in "cellophane" and then they are packed up for shipping off to Artists in Cellophane (Art-o-mat HQ) for distribution to Art-o-mat machines across the country.

So basically there is still quite a ways to go with these...LOL.

JUST ADDED: this is how the hangers look on the backs of the blocks for Penciled In.

They go on the backs of the blocks that Juana and I make for our Art-o-mat series called "Penciled In".

I added a photo to the post.
