Yes the very fugly Meant to Be Frame now has a home and a purpose! It's off to the Corning Library who is hosting the artists for the Corning ReStore contest. John from the ReStore hooked me up with a very old mirror for $8 and I retaught myself how to cut a mirror to fit in the frame. It wasn't pleasant and in fact, next time I will go to Lowes who I learned later was able to cut mirror. (did you read yesterday's post where I mentioned mirror shards on the floor, lol!)
What WAS pleasant was watching this MakerBot Replicator 3 D printer make those letters. It was humming to itself as it worked along. I imagine the little robot was thinking to itself, WHY YES I AM FABULOUS! I did add a coat of spray paint but as I learned after gluing down the first letter, I should have also done the backside...as I get a smidge of pink showing up now with the mirror.
Part of the contest allows artists time on the Bot to make their own stuff. I went with letters as I thought they would be similar to chipboard...not really honestly. They are plastic so are a class of their own and much harder.
One more photo of my frame and Duncan, the wonderdog. I am pretty sure he was thinking his dog mommy IS fabulous! Happy Thursday and wish me luck! There is a $100 ReStore Gift Cert up for grabs! Pretty sure I can't win, but hope this frame makes them a little money!
