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.
