Paper Mache Gun Sprays Furniture Into Midair [Pics]
Designer James Shaw has developed a collection of three 'Making Guns' with tools for making rough forms that solidify into unique creations.
London-based designer James Shaw has developed a collection of three ‘Making Guns,’ which are tools for producing unique furniture creations. They include the papier mâché gun, the pewter squirting gun and the plastic extruding gun.
The papier mâché gun co-sprays a mixture of recycled paper fiber with a binder-water so they mix in the air before hitting a substrate. This process creates rough geological-looking forms and color can be mixed in to add an extra element.
The pewter squirting gun can melt and squirt out pewter like a water pistol, with it cooling and solidifying where it lands. This can create organic forms that embrace the natural characteristics of the material and give the impression of freezing time.
