kimbo’s solar system
(i say kinda cause i didn’t try to replicate ACTUAL planets…)
this is made very similar to my giant cupcake (you can go here for a refresher)
and I gave them a coat of magikote by americana (it basically is like a paint that seals the styrofoam)
(i didn’t over them all..because i wanted some planets to be porous!)
I also took the magikote and dripped it over some planets for dimension!
I then took some krylon spray paint and paint from americana and gave them all some pretty color!
then i found some glowz paint by krylon
and i gave all those little planets a nice coat…
I did the same treatment to an embroidery hoop!
then i added a little one inside the big one (using clear string)
I THEN found some glow in the dark stars (i’ve been “fall” cleaning so i keep finding all these “treasures”)
I took two stars the same size and hot glued them together with the string in between…
then i just hung them to my hoops…
i ran a needle with the clear string through the planets and added a little gorilla glue
to the ends to keep the string from slipping all the way through.
i made sure to spread the planets evenly around the hoops so it didn’t lean to one side…
you could get real creative and add some starwars battle ships in there….but for now…it works! and it glows so awesome at night! perfect night light!
