At the Phoenix Asylum we have an on tap soda system, loaded with hand crafted by one of our artisans. Prior to the sugru build night we had a plain jane black tap handle. It was decided that it needed to be a little more spiffy. So here is what I did.

Step 1: Step One

First protect the area that you are working in, we used paper plates to work on. Wear gloves and tie and long hair back.

I opened the package according to the directions and prepared the sugru for use. It sets up in 30 minutes so I had to have my idea ready.

When all was prepared, I rolled half of my sugru into a long thin thread, or snake like shape.

Step 2: Step 2

After rolling both colors into long threads I twisted the bottom parts together and left the tops un-twisted. I then pressed it onto the tap handle in a manner to represent fire.

Step 3: Step 3

Almost done, here you can see I shaped the sugru into fire like spires. After getting the basic shape of what I want on the tap handle I smooth out the sugru and do any final shaping and refining before my thirty minutes is up. Then I placed it in my space to cure for the final 24 hours. Once it has be cured it can withstand some pretty amazing things.

Step 4: Final Picture

Project complete. In under 20 minutes you could have the most unique tap handle in town.

<p>Awesome!</p>
<p>I think Tater has a picture of the finished one - but we can put it on the kegerator and photograph it now that it's done curing.</p>
<p>I'm sorry, I never got a photo of the finished handle.</p>
<p>That is so cool! </p><p>You may want to put a photo of the finished handle in as the main photo. Just a tip! :)</p>
