It might not be as detailed as it would be with an Epilog Zing Laser Etcher.
But, it's still a useful tool! ; - )
I thought: why waste the energy sending old plastic coat-hangers to the landfill; or waste energy melting them down at a recycling plant? Every time I put something in the trash, or see something being thrown away, I always wonder how these items could be repurposed.
Voila! Hanger Tools!
Plastic Coat Hanger
Wire-Cutters (or a hacksaw)
Step 1: Get a Hanger and Cut a Piece Out of It.
The size of piece that you choose to cut from this great re-usable resource, depends on what kind of tool you are making. This tool is for burnishing and writing into copper. So, I cut about a six-inch piece out of this one. Choose any section of the hanger that fits your need. I chose one of the corners because then you can hanger the tool from its hook when you're finished using it.
Step 2: Form the Tip
Step 3: Use Your Tool!
I grabbed a small piece of copper sheet that i had lying around. And, I'm aware that my artwork could have been more detailed if I had an Epilog Laser Etcher. But, I wanted to quickly show how effective the tool was. Check out the pics.
Have fun. And, don't get hurt.
