The production of incandescent bulbs will be banned by the European Union since September 2012. Right, but why throw away the old light bulbs or replaced with low consumption ones?
Historians bulbs are absolutely an object of next label “vintage.”
According Wikipedia: “The bulb is an electrical device designed specifically to produce light; for this purpose may use different technologies and have different potential uses.”Very good! The creative recycling of course has already thought for some time with original ideas such as those of German designers Ambientshop, which transform the unusable light bulbs in chandeliers imaginative eco-chic.
The applications are endless, according to Zephyrledlights, the degeneration of the light bulb old style without electricity are multifunctional, especially if you extract the contents and if it retains the bulb: planters, spice rack, oil lamps…
Or still, you can flip the fragility of their “being bulb” armed hardness industrial design turning them into clothes. Let’s see how!
THE RECIPE OF THE DINA
Medium Budget: Approximately EUR 5 Preparation time: 1 hour Drying time: about 48 hours
1 incandescent bulb (burned out or not)
one bag of cement
screw 1 size 60 x 100 mm
From the toolbox: a screwdriver, a paper cutter, small pliers, a drill, a fisher (relative to the screw size) , work gloves and a safety mask
again: a pencil, a spoon, a small glass, a jug of water
Before starting you should protect your work table and especially yourself, wearing gloves and mask, even if the experiment is not dangerous.
Retrieve an old light bulb and with the help of pliers rompine the bottom.
With screwdriver and pull off the internal tungsten filament and small glass parts.
Wash the bulb with water and soap or dishwashing liquid in order to make particularly smooth inner surface for a better grip of the cement paste that you will go to add.
Prepare the cement paste with the powder you bought, and water. The proportions of the mixture to find the back of the bag. Stir well the mixture must be liquid enough, then recline the bulb in the glass and with the spoon begins to fill the bulb.
With a pencil helps the cement to compress and to adhere perfectly to the entire surface of the bulb. Insert the screw.
Wipe clean with a wet sponge the outside of the module: I suggest you do so immediately after the cement drying otherwise it will be difficult to eliminate the inevitable crusts.
In addition to the gray concrete you can try other colors by mixing the prepared colored powders or use a mixture of plaster to get the bulb all white.
After about 48 hours, the concrete will be dried.
With the drill can now drill the wall, place the fisher and screw the your DINA.
