How to: Make DIY Spray Paint

I have fifty-four cans of spray paint. Seriously, I just went to the basement and counted. Years worth of specific projects, a couple of content campaigns with the awesome people at Krylon, and it's really become quite a collection.

And I still don't have all the colors I need. See, while spray paint is often the best tool for a specific task, your options are relatively limited. Compared to cans of wall paint, which you can get mixed in thousands of colors at the hardware store, and artist paints like oils and acrylics, the color of palette of spray paint is limited to those determined useful by the… read more

How To: Make Edible Shot Glasses

Originaly, the "shot glass" was a measuring device - a means to figure out a 1.5 oz. serving of a spirit. Nowadays, it's been reduced to a cheesy collectible, or worse, a tacky means of throwing down liquor way faster than necessary.

But that's not the shot glass's fault. Sipping 1.5 oz of a single spirit is a great way to learn about its flavor, aroma, and complexities. Especially if the glass contributes to the experience. So, bring back the shot glass. And, while you're at it, why not make it… read more

The Chromatic Typewriter Prints Colors with Its Keys

Artist Tyree Callahan hacked into a Underwood Standard typewriter from 1937 to create this absolutely amazing piece, dubbed the Chromatic Typewriter. The "typebars" are replaced with ink pads, and the keys given a corresponding color. From the duo of tones on each key, it looks like the artist even preserved the "shift" option.

As a scultpture, it's plenty striking, but the piece actually works to create original "paintings" by typing on the… read more

The human brain is an incredible thing, but the fact that this series even occured to NYC-based photographer Ted Sabarese is mind-blowing.

Or perhaps he just saw that episode of The Simpsons where Homer's face seems to be the spokescreature for a Japanese soap company, but it's really just a fish and a lightbulb.
