It all starts with an unwanted vinyl record, scrounged from the corner of an op-shop after it sat untouched for decades in someone’s garage.
The record is brought to Handmade Pride’s workshop where it is then prepared to be transformed into something amazing. The acrylic paint colours are selected before being mixed and carefully poured onto the record using one of various fluid art techniques. It is then placed on a shelf to dry.
Over the next week (sometimes two), the colourful paints turn from liquid into a solid, leaving behind a mesmerising and unique pattern. The unpredictability of the fluid painting process means the final result can often look different than when freshly poured.
Once dried, the artwork is coated with a coat of clear resin to make the colours pop and give the artwork some shine. After another week of drying, a silent mechanism is carefully attached, which includes a hook and sweeping second hand.
What was once a piece of unwanted history which was destined for landfill, has now been transformed into a unique and colourful piece of functional artwork that is calling out for its new home.
Be prepared to disappoint your friends (in the nicest way possible) when you tell them that your functional artwork is a one-of-a-kind piece and they can’t have the same one, even if they love it as much as you do. They’ll just have to find their own unique functional artwork on our website and make it theirs.
This beautiful piece of functional up-cycled artwork is as unique and as individual as you.
Why You’ll love it
Please note: as it is made from a vinyl record, your artwork will need to be kept out of direct sunlight. Direct sun or extreme heat will cause the vinyl to warp.
