Well, I'm at it again... I made a rainbow version!  This was made in the same manner as my silver version, see here for that post:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=348117.0

The set of paperclips I bought had White, Red, Pink, Yellow, Green, Blue.  No Orange?!  So I bought a can of clearance Orange spray paint for 0.97, and spray painted all the pink clips to Orange!  This did make them orange, but it made them even harder to work with, since they dried to a slight tack. The plastic paperclips weren't a joy to work with. They seemed to be coated with... I dunno..... vinyl or something, and they were slightly grabby. The smooth silver paperclips are really fabulous to work with, by comparison.

My hubby has an idea for another one with rainbow colors, but a different color pattern, so hopefully I'll be back with more later on!
















These next two link to very short vids that pan around it a bit to give better visualization:






This links to a slightly longer vid that shows the way it twirls in a nifty way when it's unfinished, I wished I'd taken a vid of this with the silver one, so I was sure to remember it this time: (it also illustrates the 'grabbiness' of the plastic paperclips, that would not have have happened if it was sliver paperclips)

Thanks for lookin! ^_^

That's awesome! I actually saw a fruit bowl and a sort of chain-mail dress (which would obviously go on over a black or white silk under-lining) at a market in London's East End (it's called the Sunday Up Market and it happens just off Brick Lane.)

Perhaps you can try making a dress next!
