Here's today's work.

What I started with.


Mask off the areas I don't want painted and lay on some color.


Add the black.


Add the white.


A splash of pink and yellow and it's done!


Back side.


Back to its spot.


More to come!

Couple more

Freaking flames. I watch other people do them and it looks so easy. Anyway, these were good enough to not get repainted a solid color immediately. I shall keep trying.

This was my first one. It's actually kinda pretty, but not the true fire effect I was going for.




Try try again. Still not there.


Trying again, on a mailbox this time. Getting closer, but still disappointing.


I've got another practice mailbox so I think I'll sand it down and try a variation of this theme on it.


More to come!?!?

Nice work! While I wouldn't care to put my plants in those crazy designs, they're interesting and well done nonetheless.

I quite like the flame one! You're very good at painting them too!

I'd love to turn an old Lisa or Mac II etc. into a powerhouse! If only I had the time.

I've had offers, but am not interested. It's all for fun. I've given quite a few away.

Heh, that's pretty sweet. Great idea turning those old Macs into planters. Not sure if I like this or the Mac aquarium better.

Wow!! I'm really impressed by your airbrushing skills. It's certainly not as easy as it looks.

I wish I could find my artistic side again. My spare time has been consumed by tinkering with electronics for far too long.

Threadsurection Warning!

Posting here since it features several of the planters and a brief cameo by my iPad and old MacBook Pro at the end.

40 seconds of something you don't see every day, created by me this afternoon with the aid of my iPhone and several cheap light beers.
