DIY copper hooks

These DIY copper hooks was part of the DIYs that I made for the bathroom on a budget make-over challenge for ISCA Taps’ stand at the Johannesburg edition of Decorex 2018. Friendy Melanie Wessels Photography was kind enough to assist me with the DIY and take some lovilee images as well.

You can view the step-by-step DIY tutorial over on the ISCA site here.

What is an epoxy adhesive?

Epoxies are created by polymerizing a mixture of two starting compounds, the resin and the hardener. When resin is mixed with a specified catalyst, curing is initiated. (Source) When you purchase an epoxy adhesive, there are two tubes that you normally mix in equal parts. When the adhesive hardens then it is super duper strong if used as per the instructions and on the correct surface area.

Should you decide to keep the hooks a copper colour then you will have to seal them with a clear sealant. If you decide to paint them, then you just need to make sure that you have a spray paint with a primer to bond the paint to the pipes.
