Tin ShipAugust 2, 2014 at 9:02 am | Posted in Traditional Toys | 2 Comments
Not sure what I should call this ship many call with different name ^^ so let’s call it tin ship since it’s most made from Tin containers.
This one of my remembered Childhood toy, they usually sell them on carnival or in some case zoo maybe, kinda hard finding this these days. with plastic toys won over something like this.
the shape never change, the size kinda smaller than i used to think or they make it smaller indeed ?
somehow it works by boiling the water^^ shown latter
you put cotton here and fill it with oil/alchohol/liquor/gasoline even candle works i think
but it’s recommended something not burn so fast/too large or just don’t put them too much
in this case I use cooking oil
so this video below shown how it works well
*it seems wordpress don’t support insert video from flickr anymore even using html code, you had to use the link 😦
if you ask how long this ship will last ?
not exactly too long because the tin won’t last with fire it will definitely melt and sink if you play with it too long. and the tin used to made this not as thick as it used to be …
play couple minutes turn the fire off and wait it to cooling down will do.
