If you don't yet know about Sugru I will give you a little information here, otherwise move right along to the steps. So, Sugru is a really great new product made in London. It acts like sticky clay for a few minutes, then acts like clay for half hour or so, then it hardens and acts like rubber. In fact it is silicone rubber. The hardest thing about using it it to open the package and think what to do with it - once you do that though the ideas just keep coming. But don't open the package until you know what you want to do.
It bonds to itself, aluminium, steel, ceramics, glass, wood, leather and some plastics. Go to their website to find out how to buy it and for lots of great ideas on what to do with it at Sugru.
This is my entry into the Sugru contest so be sure to vote for me if you like this idea, staring when the voting starts.
Step 1: Supplies
- Bic pen
- Pasta machine
- Sugru - 1 packet's worth
Step 2: Mixing Sugru Colors
The best way to mix two or more colors to achieve the color you want is to pull apart the Sugru by stretching and folding it back on itself and stretching some more. The stretching is what blends the colors.
Step 3: Preparing Your Pen
Step 4: Rolling Sugru Through the Pasta Machine
You can skip starting over if you think it is thin enough at any one setting, you want it to be large enough to cover your pen.
Step 5: Wrap
Step 6: Roll
Step 7: Trim
Step 8: Wait
Step 9: Done
I hope you will make a pen with Sugru and embellish it with something cool - a patch to anyone who attaches a photo in the comment section.
