Okay! I got out of work at 11:10 tonight! Hopped into the car and FLEEEEEEEEEW to Home Depot!
Took me just under 20 minutes, and I knew that I had only a half hour left to find what I needed. I was better prepared this time!
Knowing what was in the Plumbing and Cabinet areas, I ventured deeper into the lumbar area. I found some nice wooden poles (round, light-weight wood) last night, but they were $2 a foot and I needed 3 7 foot poles… I was NOT about to spend $42 on 3 wooden poles 😉 Around the corner I found some square wooden poles… Perfect I though! They were $4 each. I grabbed 4 of em. (I only need 3, but I can experiment with drilling one and not worry about it!
I picked up some metal clips to hold the backgrounds to the wooden poles and grabbed ANOTHER 12″ light globe so I can make another Asshole helmet. I’m gonna get it right this time! I’m going to borrow a dremmel to cut out the helmet rather than sit there with a hacksaw and fuck everything up. THEN I’ll prime and paint it properly!
Got home and the wooden poles worked great. Clipped the backgrounds to em and rolled em up. Took the extra pole and drilled a 1/2″ hole half-way through it in the very center. Holds onto the light stand perfectly. I have a heavy duty light stand on it’s way and that one should be able to hold on to the background pretty well.
