Building a Pirate Themed-Anchor
A quick tutorial for a Pirate-Themed Anchor!
To get begin, you'll need: - PVC Pipe for the main stem and cross-member - Paintable Caulking to hide seams and create texture - Tennis Balls - fuzz stripped off - Cardboard & Foam -Masking Tape - Duct Tape - Paint
Drill a hole to slide the cross member - add caulking and texture. I don't glue these pieces as I recycle them for future projects.
Use a heat gun to bend the PVC at the base. Adding strips of Duct Tape helps give the cardboard strip something to grip. Wrap with masking tape to hold.
Add duct tape around base to thicken up. Add Foam or Cardboard ends and add more caulking for texture.
Use a metallic spray paint and then coat with a light turqouise for the patina.
Some Spooky Cloth and Chain help the final effect!
