Glow in the Dark – Constellation Tumbler

DIY Tutorial: Glow in the dark - Constellation Tumbler | @onelmon

Hi there! Finally, it’s summer here and I can definitely feel the heat these days. I sweat like crazy and carry my water bottle almost everywhere to avoid dehydration. So, early this week, my water bottle finally gave in (after a heavy usage, flipping the cap open and close for umpteenth time in a day). I saw this “create your own tumbler” tumbler during the open campus at my school the other day and decided to purchase one myself. I was thinking of designing something with a ring of summer and I don’t know why but I always relate star gazing with summer. So here goes the constellation tumbler (with a little magic!)

Halo semuanya! Sekarang lagi musim panas di sini dan mataharinya benar-benar terik membuat saya terus berkeringat dan selalu mengingatkan diri untuk membawa botol air ke mana-mana supaya tidak dehidrasi. Jadi ceritanya, karena penggunaan yang berlebihan, bagian tutupnya rusak dan saya membeli botol air bentuk termos tumbler yang baru. Tumbler ini dapat anda desain sendiri gambar luarnya dan saya berpikir untuk menggambar sesuatu dengan tema musim panas. Ngga tahu kenapa, yang langsung terpikir adalah rasi bintang. Jadi tema craft minggu ini adalah desain tumbler dengan rasi bintang (dan sedikit tambahan sihir!)

What you need | Yang anda butuhkan:

  1. Tumbler (DIY version) | Termos tumbler (versi DIY);
  2. Dark blue or black color paper | Kertas warna biru tua atau hitam;
  3. Glow in the dark paint | Cat fosfor;
  4. Paint brush | Kuas cat;
  5. Pencil | Pensil;
  6. Scissors | Gunting.

Step 1:
Take out the design sample paper from your tumbler and trace the shape to your dark color paper.

Langkah 1:
Tarik keluar kertas contoh dari termos anda dan dengan menggunakan kertas tersebut sebagai cetakan, buat versi anda dengan kertas berwarna gelap.

Step 3:
Paint the stars with glow-in-the-dark paint. You may want to vary with the sizes.

Warnai bintang-bintang dengan cat fosfor. Saran saya untuk lebih bervariasi dengan ukuran bintang.

Hasil setelah pewarnaan. Biarkan kering.

Turn off the light and Tadaaaa! A shiny constellation on your tumbler!
Note: Sorry for the blurry picture. I did some search on the Internet on how to take a glow-in-the-dark picture (tripod, manual settings) but none works for me. If there is any tip you can share with me, I’ll be extremely grateful!!

Matikan lampu anda dan Tadaaaa! Rasi bintang yang gemerlap pada termos anda!
Catatan: Maaf untuk foto yang buram. Saya mencoba berbagai cara (rekomendasi dari internet) untuk memotret cahaya cat fosfor tapi hasilnya masih kurang bagus. Bila ada yang mau berbagi tip, saya akan sangat berterima kasih!!
