Trash to Treasure: Old Art Supplies

Sasha Andreev shows Joan Steffend new uses for old art supplies.

A used paint palette gets transformed into a votive holder. Holes are drilled through the palette and then picture-hanger wire is wrapped around the votives and threaded through the holes. The wires are twisted together then epoxied to the back of the palette to keep the votives in place.

An old ink bottle was turned into postcard /photo holder by drilling tiny holes into the rubber top and then poking copper wires with curly ends through the holes.

Small canvas panels, old paintbrushes and beads come together to create a one-of-a-kind, personalized mobile.
