The spin art switch adapted toy allows the user to control the spinning canvas with an accessible switch to make unique art. The spin art toy can be best enjoyed with the use of three switches although only one is required at minimum. The switches must have 3.5mm cables. This model of toy allows the user to view their painting in 3D glow with the use of the included glasses.
A piece of cardstock should be secured to the spinner, then the device turned on. The user can drop paint onto the canvas with the bottles of paint, or a paint brush. The user may wish to use the adapted head pointer (https://makersmakingchange.com/project/adapted-head-pointer/) to use the paintbrush.
You can build the spin art toy using the attached instruction documents.
