She Carefully Glued 13,000 Dark And Shiny Pennies To Create This Awesome Floor
November 11, 2016
It all started with three $50 bags of pennies from the bank and some Elmer's glue.
"I started by measuring the area and finding the center," she wrote on Imgur. "Drew an axis to follow along. I started by glueing one diamond shape in the center. I let it dry so I could push the next pennies against the center without the whole thing sliding. Didn't really have a design in mind. Just started with the diamonds, liked how it looked and kept going."
"Once I reached an edge I decided a border would be a good idea."
"Here's where I started realizing that I there were not going to be enough dark pennies. Bought some liver of sulphur to turn them a blue-purple-black color."
Working up to the 3rd corner.
After the pennies were glued, it was time to grout.
"I just followed the instructions on the grout box. You have to make sure it gets pressed in the little gaps. I used unsanded grout because the gaps were tiny."
Picture after epoxying.
"Close up. You can see the pennies alternate heads/tails and all face the same direction because I'm crazy and I hate myself."
The finished product! About $130 in pennies, 10 bottles of Elmer's glue, some grout and epoxy to give the floor a shiny finish.
