sugru is the new self-setting rubber for fixing, modifying and making stuff.
sugru can be formed and shaped by hand for up to 30 minutes once it has been removed from its packaging.
Sticks to almost anything
sugru forms a strong bond to metal, ceramics, glass, wood and some plastics like perspex and ABS and rubbers like silicone and butyl rubber.
Air cures at room temperature
sugru is like modelling clay when you take it from its pack. Once it's exposed to air, it cures to a tough flexible silicone overnight using the moisture in the air.
I always wanted to expand on my iPhone's ability to create unique images quickly and easily. I decided a tripod would be the best starter option and after looking at options and figuring $20 to $50 or even $100 bucks was absurd.
- Cheap or Old iPhone case
- 1/4" Hex Nut
- One 5g pack of sugru
- Tripod with quick release plate
Take the sugru. Open and knead it.
Take the case and clean the surface. I used a cheap iPhone 5 snap case I got for $7.00 bucks at TJ Max.
Find a nice place for the nut to rest. Side/bottom or something logical.
Apply a small amount of sugru on the case and press the nut down. Mould the excess sugru up around the nut to help hold the position in the centre. Try to tamp down the excess.
Now build in around the base to ensure you have a good amount of material to prevent the torque of the screw locking into the nut tearing apart the set up. And make it look better than mine!
Let it cure then snap away. Try timelapse or long exposure or light painting. Have fun!
