Spoons for Instrument Ten
With the earlier paint throwing instruments I relied on ready made spoons – at first plastic spoons for making tea or coffee (Instrument Four) and then various versions of measuring spoons for cooking (Instruments Five, Seven and Eight). For Instrument Ten I made a set of bespoke spoons that would allow some modulation of the character of the paint throw beyond the viscosity of the paint and the settings on the paint catapult. The two compartment spoons have proved particularly versatile. The spoons fit the catapults exactly but are also held in place with an elastic band.
