Usually an axe is a tool for men. However, it is so sexist! Why can’t women and even young girls have their own sort of an axe? “Hello Kitty” axes, for example?
That’s told to do! Here’s our “Hello Kitty” axe and some short DIY instructions.
Let us take a regular axe first. Soon it will be looking totally different.
Take the paint and rust away.
The metal of the blade.
The surface needs to be polished. Otherwise, engraving won’t be possible.
This is the final result.
It is necessary to continue polishing with the help of abrasive nozzles.
The nozzle at the end of the work.
The final view of the axe.
Now we’ll paint a kitten with a marker.
It is time for engraving now.
The outlines of the kitten is actually the most important thing.
To make the axe look more mad, it is desirable to make a hole in it and fix a toy. But how can such a hole be made in metal?
This is what can help.
Let us take a cotton swab, put a little drop of saline solution on the axe surface.
Repeat the procedure many times.
In 5-6 hours of the continuous work you will get the needed result.
Now you can see how many cotton swabs were wasted.
Now some more polishing and paint can be finally applied.
Now let us take some glue.
And mosaic gold. It is actually a very thin foil.
Apply glue to those parts of the axe which are not closed with paper and won’t be golden.
Leave the glued axe for half an hour, attach mosaic gold to the glued surface and fix it with a brush.
Wait for some time and remove the excess.
Remove the paper and do the same with the opposite side of the axe. A bit of golden marker and the blade is ready.
Lacquer the blade and leave it to dry. Make the handle of the axe look like that.
The axe was planned to be called ‘The axe for girls’ but was named ‘Kitty jump’ instead as by the moment when the instrument was ready the author thought of another axe model intended purely for girls.
Just a final glance to be sure the blade is nested fine on the handle and you are done. So don’t be fooled by its not very serious appearance, the author claims it to be a real tool (or weapon) without losing any of its features and can be used for any purpose. Also it fits a large purse perfectly, except that a handle tips out a bit, which in turn makes a lady even more flashy having an axe handle out of her bag.
