1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Keyboard Art: Part 2 on: April 18, 2015 04:12:26 PM
I've been wondering what to do with these bases for a while. I used all the keys on other projects and didn't want to just throw away the rest when I was done with it. I hate waste! Then I realised they would make really cool frames....  Smiley

and another that my friend made, we had a bit of a crafty night Smiley

Thanks for the ideas guys Smiley

I was initially thinking of framing it with the microchips from inside the keyboards. A bit more upcycling! But maybe a simpler wooden frame will be more effective. Maybe upcycled lumber of some sort...

Here's a picture I have been making from various colour keyboard keys. I filled the gaps with epoxy resin, but it took ages to dry (like six months!  Shocked ) so I guess I used the wrong type!

Now I just need to figure out a cool way to frame it. Any suggestions?

Is that a clear plastic pocket? I love this. I'm not surprised your boys love it, I'm a 27 year old boy, and I still love my lego! Awesome make Smiley

Hi everyone, I went to the scrappys today to get some new wheels for my car and I was wondering what parts usually get wasted? I know the frame usually goes to get crushed after being stripped down. I've seen some great things done with seatbelts. Obviously I'd need quite a few to make something, anyone ever got seatbelts from the scrappy before? How much did you pay? Also what's the cheapest art supply you've ever got from a scrapyard?

elderflower, I only just noticed your post. Well spotted. I didn't notice the KEY element when I made this but it's now strikingly clear. I wonder if I did that subconsciously.....
