Sometimes I see a new idea and my hands just get itchy wanting to try it so bad! This salt art is one of those ideas! After viewing an art installation by Motoi Yamamoto, Buggy and Buddy were inspired to try some salt art of their own and shared the details on their blog.
All of the books are packed with colorful and creative crafts that are inspired by mid-century designers. In each section of the book there is a brief description of a famous mid-century designer and then it is followed by projects that were inspired by that designers work. For example, Alexander Girard inspired painted wood spoons and blocks, cardboard houses are inspired by Luis Barragán, and Paul Rand inspires a self-stick shelf paper wall mural. There is a nice spread of mediums and techniques to work with too: felt, cardboard, stitchery, jewelry, paper, paint, dye and more.
The craft I'm sharing today is an excerpt from Kid Made Modern and is inspired by Alexander Calder's wire sculptures.
