Introduction: String Art Modules for Stage Building
Instructions to build a stage decoration.
Step 1: Gathering Materials
wood 20x20x1500 mm
nails 1,7 x 20-40 mm
hammer and saw
screws and/or metal plates/ L-plate
Step 2: Choose Shape and Cut
Measure 75cm and cut the wood with saw.
For triangle cut all tips in 60 degree angle, for square cut wood tips 45 degrees
Optional: choose a shape for inside the module I use half the size of triangle for triangular module.
Step 3: Nailing and Assembly
Measure a line in the middle of one piece (so nails go straight all the way). Start drawing nail points to wood. Start from the middle. From middle to ends straight line every 2 cm. Midpoints will be the place you need to hammer the nails.
Assembly the module:
For squares I use L-shape metal plates and small screws.
For triangles I use a screw and PVA glue.
There are two ways to colour:
1. before assembly
2. after assembly
Step 4: Painting
I use matt black spray paint for wood. You can choose a different paint fow wood also.
I paint all pieces before assembly.
Step 5: Stringing
Start by making a knot to one of the nails. Then choose a pattern and start experimenting with different shapes.
To make stringart you can use sewing thread, wool, yarn, thinner rope etc.
Step 6: Making Stages
Make more then few triangles and/of squares so you can put them together like LEGO-s.
Enjoy your new art :)
