Kick-ass soda-bottle toy jet pack for a flight-obsessed toddler by Mosie.
Make yourself one:
Step 1: Spray plastic bottles with plastic primer (I used Krylon Fusion). Let dry.
Step 2: Spray bottles with your favorite silver spray paint (doesn’t have to be plastic specific.) Let dry.
Step 3: Adhere bottles to a piece of cardboard, approximately the width of the bottles next to each other. Let dry.
Step 4: Use ribbon to create backpack-like straps. Adhere. (I used duct tape. That shiz works for everything!)
Step 5: Cut crepe paper strips to create flames. Glue the tops of the strips to another piece of crepe paper. Let dry.
Step 6: Accordion fold the top strip of the flames. Glue to the inside of the bottle tops (which are actually the bottom of the jetpack.) Let Dry.
Step 7: Run around the house making flying sounds with your mouth (or let your kid handle this step)
Miniature cars move along the elevated freeway at Chris Burden’s large-scale kinetic sculpture, Metropolis II, exhibited at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) in LA, California.
The sculpture is modeled after a fast-paced futuristic city with 1,100 miniature cars running through an elaborate system of roadway tracks at a scale speed of about 240 miles per hour.
