In the continuing saga of catching up with the (wire nuts) ghosts of Christmas past we present Wire Nut Painter. This is for my son, who in addition to being a musician is an artist. So obviously...... we had to do a Wire Nut Painter. Here he is, headless. The head sports a beret made out of a .223 cartridge base.
The really hard part of this composition was the paintbrush. As I pointed out in the last post, soldering stranded wire to solid is not easy. In this case I had to solder a brush base to a solid copper wire. I haven't really figured out the thing yet, but due to some circumstances out of range of this blog, I have some ideas. Maybe next year.
