Humorous Rope Barometer

Featured

Step 1: Getting started

I went to the store and bought some wood but any wood you have around can work. I also bought some rope, I wanted to use natural-fibre rope instead of nylon rope only because I thought it would look better. 

Step 2: Screen printing the graphics

I could have used a variety of methods to print on the graphics but I decided to screen print them on. I understand that it is probably the most difficult way but I think it looks the best. Basically I wanted to learn how to screen print too. I bought a screen printing kit from a local art supply store. After reading about the different ways to screen print I decided to use the Photo Emulation method

Step 3: Add the rope

Simply drill a hole, slip the rope through, and tie a not at both ends. 

Step 4: Clear Coat
