Creating your own boxes for any purpose is a time consuming exacting endeavor, just the kind I like.
Old maps with a waxy finish make a perfect cover. All these weights could be used as a weapon as they are quite heavy, that's the point.
I've featured these before. They were my Dad's. A friend of his melted lead into muffin tins, then used enamel paint to cover them. A screw was embedded into the lead so a knob could be attached.
I have put new felt on the bottoms and added newer knobs.
These are always the envy of fellow artists at workshops.
I totally stole this idea from Shanna Leino. Hers are sold out
so I pulled out the scrap leather bag & went to town.
These BBs have come in handy for the leather weight as well as fabric sculptures that need
some heft to keep elements where I want them.
The measures were just a way to make my title work.
More interest than just weights don't you think?
These tools are just as important. Could have used them for "M".
