The Beady Eyed Craftster is our occasional round-up of shiny (mostly) art and craft related links from across the internets.
• This tutorial from Design Folder on giving a bit of colour to spare bottles and jars is pretty cool, and the results are spiffy. [Found via Curbly]
• Another how-to; Dismount Creative shows us how to make a bowl from leather scraps and rivets.
• Boston Public Library’s collection of old travel posters is well worth a browse. I love the retro styles of these pieces.
• Doing the rounds on the interwebs recently, but worth a mention nonetheless, this skull carved from obsolete computer manuals is super cool. As a computer guy, hefty manuals relating to dead technologies is something I’m very familiar with.
• Acommonname makes paper-cut geodes to install in empty urban gaps: missing bricks, unused pipes, etc. The geodes are formed from hundreds of individual pieces of paper geometric solids.
• YouTube video time: this cool vid of a ferrofluid in a magnetic field is really interesting, forming intricate mazes and calligraphic patterns. Worth a watch.
