A magical Kaleidoscope Kaleidoscope-tinker – bast ELAN line
One look at the world from a completely new angle. Colored, colorful, something magical, enchanted. And a little crafting fun. That sounds like a beautiful afternoon in nasty dirty weather. And a very sweet, creative and personal gift.
In the pondering about beautiful themes for my Vintage Blog, I came to childhood memories in mind. At the time, in which the world has somewhat carefree, exciting, even magical. Research on the time in which follow his discoverer urge to unknown things. Every little thing can be the subject of fascination.
What has moved me at that time especially in amazement? I know – my beloved Kaleidoscope. As soon as I think about it, I will again warm to the heart. I don’t remember how and when I got it for Christmas. Where it is today, I unfortunately right no longer know. But I remember the amazement that overcame me as I squinted through the same loophole of the black tube and the magical world of color, which I saw at the other end, turning each little turn in new forms and images.
A sparkle and shine as you would look into the treasure chest of a King . I no longer got out of amazement. Turned. And turned. And turned on the tube. Times turquoise, times more pink, and even colorful mess reflected the most beautiful patterns before my eyes.
And while the perpetual question: like this magic toy does actually work?
From the outside, it is a so small, unassuming object. Inside a colorful new world. A small Cosmos, a magic mirror, a world of adventures. And I thought to myself I would like to experience this wonder again.
I sat on the PC and was looking for the online trading has to offer. And one immediately caught my look – a kaleidoscope of do it yourself*. This is just my world. And so cheap. In the shopping cart* and it started already.
I got you also have nice construction paper in the creative market. (And am there fall into a veritable shopping spree. Small Tip: who as creative person goes into such stores, should best only ten euros take.)
The Kaleidoscope was known already by the ancient Greeks ! It originally means ‘beautiful picture shower ‘. The piece was patented by the Scottish physicist David Brewster to the patent however until 1817. It noted that in acute angles to each other inclined mirror several times reflect the mirror images of glass pieces or beads creates a symmetric, colored patterns. This changes when turning.
The amazing symmetry and color makes the specificity of the object for me, too. This is also probably the reason why it is used for centuries as a popular children’s toys.
The Kaleidoscope craft went by the way easily. The important components, 14 units in number, were all already there and guide short and crisp. The three mirrors I should connect in a triangle shape and then wrapped with foam, slide into the tube. Then stick to the eyepiece. The film circles and spacer mesh plug and insert at the end the semi-precious stones shaped as flowers. The sleeves all fit together. Already the own, magical DIY Kaleidoscope is finished. The whole thing has, with the use of tubes, lasted about an hour.
I have of course taken up the vintage theme for the design. There are really endless possibilities to make it. The handicraft shops move formally with paper printed with the most imaginative motifs and patterns. Whether for yourself, a dear friend to the gift or a small child in the family. For each, you can choose a custom design. To find it is here by the way.
I was thinking about doing my little nephew. When he’s old enough, we can try things together. And I am already on his large, Glittering eyes, if he looks the first time in a kaleidoscope of magic and in the dreams. The variety of colors and shapes.
And now you look like beautiful views looks through the eyepiece!
Once the Rainbow and back.
