f.y.i. d.i.y.


sketchbook pages with drilling traces made with a star shaped screw driver drilling machine. different strokes labelled »torx 40, torx 30, torx 20, torx 10«. Colours are bit washed out because the paper is too thin to hold fixation of the carbon really well…

I wanted to use a common drilling machine for drawing purposes the other day. That’s what d.i.y. is all about, no? Drilling machines? First i tried out different sizes of a star screw drive to find out a well balanced stroke width. They all look the same… well, the choice is then size 10.

It’s hard to control the drill on carbon paper, a bit like a wild typewriter out of control.

three thin clumps, pencil drawing on paper

As you cannot see through the black carbon paper, it’s good to have a template for tracing. I did a small series of these »Klumpen« pencil drawings some time ago and copied them to a larger format for tracing on A4.

The beautiful line accidents will still happen while you plough over the paper with the drill. Therefore, the template drawing is rather a rough guideline of how the machine is moved.

You can do several copies with one sheet of carbon paper, but at some point it gets rubbed off too much and drawings become lighter and lighter and lighter and lighter…
