This is an artwork the three boys and I made yesterday. It is made using mainly recycled material.
The size is 2 X 2 feet. After having made a simple sketch for the picture, I set off collecting the materials that I wanted to use. I had these on hand as I keep aside recycled stuff for craft.
The base which a particle board was $1 from our local RONA (a Canadian hardware store). They do have scrap pieces of material and will cut to size upon request. The caps are from milk jugs. Some can lids, a no-sharp can opener will keep them safe to handle. Corrugated cardboard from packaging. Craft sticks. Some glossy magazine paper (not in picture) for the background.
I also had some white and black spray paint. I purchased a primer for the particle board.
I do not have pictures of the next steps, but this is how it went.
1. Creat mountains using corrugated cardboard. Glue them down.
2. Create Ka’abah on a black pice of cardstock using black spray painted can lids and craft sticks. Glue in down.
3. Add people making tawaf by gluing white spray painted milk jug lids.
Here is a more detailed picture of what went where.
