Peanut Butter Fudge (The Best You'll Ever Have)
I am glad to have passed on a little inspiration. It sounds like you have been a scrapper and collector for longer than I have been thought of! I bet with the culch collection and the morgue you will be able to come up with some brilliant things. Good luck!
Oh Wow! They are awesome! I use a hand held drill (like the dental ones) with a cutting blade. A band saw would be better I think as long as you have a fine enough blade, I have shaky hands and am inclined to wonky cuts, I think the steady base of a band saw might be advantageous. The boards have a tendency to splinter and crack so I think the tin snips might be a bit too much pressure for them. Definitely wear eye protection and a mask and be well ventilated though as the smell is pretty bad, as is the dust, and bits tend to fly off in random directions. I'm not sure any of it would be good for you to inhale or have lodged in your eye. Good luck with it, I'd love to see the finished product :)
At the time I started doing these I was primarily an acrylic artist so the painting step was a natural progression for me. I love the whole 'steam punk' aesthetic so I borrowed some inspiration from there. Give it a go, it really is a lot of fun and you end up with something cool and unique in the end :)
