I wanted to make it, but my plan was to turn it into a statement piece. Today it is normal to be filmed everywhere and rarely people are wondering on how much it it is invading their privacy.
Step 1: Stuff you need
- cheap lamp (Mine is called Lagra from ikea), or an AC plug with a switch, a bulb holder and a reflector.
- Security Camera dummy (e.g. on amazon or ebay)
- Duct tape
- optional: canvas, red acrylic paint, paintbrush
- light bulb, please check out the second picture
- Dremel (I've used a 1/2 x 1/2 inch Sanding Mandrel, a SpeedClic Plastic Cutting Wheel, a SpeedClic Metal Cutting Wheel and a drill bit), alternatively a metal saw, sanding paper, a drill and patience...
- safety glasses
- a screwdriver
Step 2: Paint the canvas
Instead of painting the letters, cutting them out of a vinyl sheet and sticking them onto the canvas might be a better idea in terms of easiness.
I've uploaded the vector image of the camera. Just scale it to the size you want it to be (you can open it with inkscape). If you want to paint the image, a cheap and easy way to trace the outlines is by using a pencil to paint the back and to trace the image with a ball pen as shown in the pictures.
