Introduction: Creative Sugru Tap Handle
At the Phoenix Asylum we have an on tap soda system, loaded with hand crafted by one of our artisans. Prior to the sugru build night we had a plain jane black tap handle. It was decided that it needed to be a little more spiffy. So here is what I did.

Step 1: Step One
First protect the area that you are working in, we used paper plates to work on. Wear gloves and tie and long hair back.
I opened the package according to the directions and prepared the sugru for use. It sets up in 30 minutes so I had to have my idea ready.
When all was prepared, I rolled half of my sugru into a long thin thread, or snake like shape.
Step 2: Step 2
After rolling both colors into long threads I twisted the bottom parts together and left the tops un-twisted. I then pressed it onto the tap handle in a manner to represent fire.
Step 3: Step 3
Almost done, here you can see I shaped the sugru into fire like spires. After getting the basic shape of what I want on the tap handle I smooth out the sugru and do any final shaping and refining before my thirty minutes is up. Then I placed it in my space to cure for the final 24 hours. Once it has be cured it can withstand some pretty amazing things.
Step 4: Final Picture
Project complete. In under 20 minutes you could have the most unique tap handle in town.
