tinplate heart 01 Tinplate Kinetic Valentine

Becky shared the goodness that is Tinplate Girl’s collection of free online instructional videos and downloadable project patterns back in October. This simple kinetic sculpture called “Be Mine” is actually the work of her father, Marc. Tinplate Girl, whose name is Adriane, writes:

He made the hinges himself. Even though the design was pretty solid, there was still a lot of fitting and adjusting at the end to get everything to work properly. The red hearts came from a big tin that held a bottle of Johnnie Walker Red (hence the color). “Be Mine” was just scratched through the red coating with the point of a scriber.
