Easy to do.
Fishing weights tend to contain lead so wear gloves until you seal them.
We all like a good deal when it comes to saving money. When it comes down to it, kink is not always on the low cost side to get the effect you want and often the first thing people do is look online or check a store for the more convenient way to get what they want.
One of the easiest things to make that often cost upwards of £15+ is weights for items such as clamps of the nipple or labia. Fishing weights are often cheap and easy to obtain either from tackle shops or try local car boots. They vary to the size you want in grams,, the ones I usually have are 200 gram and 500 gram as a matter of personal preference but you can choose what ever weight you like. The key is to buy deep water weights with a brass loop on the top.
Gloves to handle them.
Jewelry loops & large clasps from craft store.
Enamel finishing spray.
What ever colour you wish to paint them.
Paper cutters / craft blade.
Ball of string.
Once you have decided on your weight sizes, always make sure you have a pair of the same weight for balance. It is best to make two or four at a time for less time when spraying the enamel layer. With your disposable gloves and dusk mask on, use the sand paper to smooth the weights and remove any bumps or slight sharp areas from their previous production. Generally cleaning them up and giving a better look
Cut a straw into two inch lengths. (you can take your mask of).
Using the string, thread it through the first weight loop, add a piece of straw, then another weight. do this until you have two or four on your string with straw separations. This is so they do not stick together once painted and sprayed.
Paint them the desired colour with water based paints so they dry quickly. May need two coats.
To spray the enamel harder Tie the string to secure ends such as between table legs or hand from somewhere such as a shower curtain or a washing line outside. Somewhere ventilated so you can spray them. When spraying follow the directions on the back of the can. It's better to spray thin layers and leave a few hours between coats or what ever the recommended time is on the can. If you don't, you will end up with the varnish warping, cracking and not setting correctly.
Once the finishing layer has hardened you can handle the weights without gloves. All that is left to do is attach the clasps with a couple split rings and close them together with your pliers.
Try them out, enjoy !
The materials to do this are only a few pounds and will give you enough to make dozens of weights for a fraction of the cost to buy the adult shop ones.
