How to fix broken slat in blinds.
3D 8-Bit M. Bison Sprite Sculpture
I just started streaming on Twitch with Xsplit myself(same username) and found this while looking for other tips. Although I didn't need it, this is a great guide for the basics. I hadn't considered the background image either since I use a green screen, but I think I might give that a shot!
I was about to buy a new blind when I saw this..hubby told me off for binning the piece of slat that broke off as he said he could have repaired it - yeah like that was ever going to happen. I have just finished replacing the broken slat with one from the bottom & amfeeling pretty smug. Cannot wait to see his face when he sees the 'fixed' slat...wonder how long it will take him to figure out how I did it ! Thank you, brilliant idea and well explained !
Also, I used a plastic needle from my daughter's toy sewing set - the eye was big enough to get the cord through and it worked a treat ?
Toothpick is genius! Thank u!!
So easy once u read instructions! And I was gonna buy new blinds!
To simplify the threading tape a tooth pick (the point positioned just beyond the end of the string) to seal the frayed ends (most of these strings are synthetic) and a little indirect heat should melt a neat little bob at the end, if you have a pricier model wet your index and thumb finger tips, pinching about a 1/4" above the end twist the frayed edges neat and dip either fast drying glue or clear nail polish. I hate venetian but I clean a house with. ..ugh lol
