#47318 - 05/27/05 08:45 AM Paint for Toys?
Anonymous
Unregistered


I'm making some toys for my glider and I plan on useing wooden blocks and some rope and I have a few questions about it.
#1. The blocks do look pretty plain and boring, is there any paints or stains that are safe for gliders?
#2. What is the best kind of rope to use? I was considering making rope from fleece and I have heard that ribbon works well, or should i go with the stuff bird toys are made from?
Thanks so much! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/gliderangel.gif" alt="" />

1) You would need to use a NON toxic paint that is safe for animals and children. I know they make it but it's hard to find and often a little more expensive. You can get coating too at home depot that is non toxic (water based)
2)I use the rope that is used a lot in bird and primate cages for them to swing from and sit on. I don't really think it has an exact name but it is a thick rope.

I used food coloring to "dye" some natural wood beads. I soaked them for a couple of days, then rinsed them. I then let them dry. After they were dry, I again soaked them in clean water for an hour or so, let them completely dry again. This helped to stop them from "bleeding" each time they are washed.

I use satin ribbon to make toys with. It is easy to work with, inexpensive, colorful, and dangles well.
