For my upcylce project, I have decided to use Q tips and superglue to form some sort of design. I’m not 100% certain what I will construct but I thought that Q tips would be a solid base for forming a wire frame-like sculpture. I will be able to easily color the Q tips as well. Some initial sculpture ideas that have come to mind include a skull, a tree, or a house/building.

If I’m feeling especially artistic, I might even try to sculpt Q-Tip out of Q tips.

    Hey Kyle! Love your idea of using simple household items to create a sculpture. In my mind it really focuses on an aesthetic of simplicity. You might not even have to color them for the same feeling being conveyed. If you need some more motivation, google has a bunch of images of different sculptures made with Q-tips. Cant wait to see what you come up with!
