f1is008b ~ Fireworks Fountains

Required tools and supplies:

  • X-acto knife and fresh blade
  • A thin metal straight-edge ruler. Make fold lines by pressing against edge of the ruler.
  • Tweezers
  • Cutting mat
  • Detailing scissors
  • Fast-grab, quick-dry white craft glue that dries clear
  • Small piece of aluminum foil to use as a glue pot
  • Small artist's paint brush to apply glue

 
1.  Cut out all fountains. Take one of the separated plys of twine and cut to approximately 1" in length for each wick.

Work at making a perfect cone of one of the fountains. Do this before applying glue.


 
2.  Glue the wick inside the opened cone. Make a wick of about 1/2" long out of the top.

Apply a coat of glue with the paint brush to the area designated on the printed cone for the overlap. Press into position. Use a pair of tweezers to create a good bond.

Repeat steps for all the fountains.
