You are watching: Name of feather duster in beauty and the beast

In this instructable, i will present you exactly how to do two various versions of the feather duster native Beauty and also the Beast that can be used for cleaning.

You might be wondering why ns am not using her surname in the title. The problem is the she wasn"t given a surname in the initial Disney movie. She is referred to as Marie (in the comics), Babette (in the musical and also House of Mouse), Plumette (in the 2017 live-action remake), and Fifi (in the midquel movie Beauty and also the Beast: Belle"s miracle World). Even though the prequel is nowhere close to as great as the original movie, we room going to speak to her Fifi in this instructable. Mainly because (in comparison to the various other adaptions) she look at the very same as in the original movie.

After city hall Beauty and also the Beast for the about hundredth time i felt yes, really inspired and wanted to bring her come life. Ns absolutely perform not choose cleaning and also never believed that a clean utensil could bring me so lot joy, but I certain love it and hope you do, too.

So let"s obtain started.

Step 1: The Design


I got in Inkscape (it is a totally free program, you can uncover it here), included a snapshot from the movie and also one indigenous the head, and also drew the outlines. I also scaled the piece to a dimension that would fit the feathers and the Swiffer.

There are various programs you can use to revolve the sketch into a 3D model. I typically use Fusion360. Simply get in the "Design" workspace, choose "INSERT", "Insert SVG", "Insert from mine computer", pick the right document and then choose a plane. Sadly, usually, the part isn"t scaled right.

The Autodesk help says: "SVG units are screen units, i.e. Pixels. A 1:1 mapping of an SVG record into combination 360 will certainly not be completed unless the SVG translator support mapping logical systems (in, mm, cm, etc.) to display screen units (pixel dimensions, which vary on the used OS and its version). Also with the devices being collection in the third-party software, the values will be converted into points by saving. The dimension of a allude is device-dependent and also application-dependent."

Luckily this can easily be fixed. Just measure the imported part by selecting "INSPECT" and also clicking on the top and bottom lines. As you deserve to see in the 2nd picture, in my situation it is 32.444 mm. Due to the fact that it is claimed to be about 123 mm, I have to use a scaling element of around 3.79 (123 mm / 32.444 mm).

Simply click on "FINISH SKETCH" (you deserve to delete that later) and reimport the SVG paper ("INSERT", "Insert SVG"). Then usage the scaling variable in "Scale aircraft XY" (it might be referred to as differently depending on the aircraft you have actually selected), prefer I am showing in the second picture. Prior to finishing the sketch, friend will have to include a heat in the middle above the sketch and one the goes v the center of the sketch.

Step 10: painting the Handle

If friend look in ~ the illustrations of Fifi, you have the right to see the there isn"t any space for the quills of the feathers, which is needed in genuine life. I made decision to repaint the bottom that the handle black come hide the it necessary to be means longer 보다 in the movie.

Once i was done airbrushing it and placed the onto the feathers, ns realized that black was as well dark and didn"t look good. So, I had actually to use masking tape again and went through a dark brown, as you can see in the third picture. Ns am happy i repainted it since it looked a lot better.

Don"t forget to paint the golden rings.

You don"t must paint the bottom that the Swiffer handle, yet the ring at the top and the bottom have to be painted golden.

Step 11: using the Finish

The mob cap is smoothed the same means as the various other parts. Girlfriend don"t need to worry about its inside since it can"t be seen later (As you deserve to see, mine is still an extremely rough).

Once the is smoothed, just spray paint it white and also paint the inside of the brim grey, as displayed in the first picture.

In the second picture, you have the right to (once again) watch the difference between a end up without (left) and also with (right) one anti-shine layer.

Once the end up is done, reduced the 2 mm thread to a length of around 16 cm. Location it with the holes and tie a node on the inside. Make certain that that can"t come loose, due to the fact that you won"t be able to fix the later. I provided a square knot.

Step 13: Glueing

Now all that is left to carry out is come glue everything together.

Start by gluing the mob lid to the head, yet be careful due to the fact that there is a direction and if you don"t get it right, it won"t be sit on the head properly.

Next, we room going to glue the handle to the head. As you can see in the third picture, the top and the underside of the Swiffer look at different. So, you will have to decide, i m sorry one you would prefer to show. I made decision to usage the underside together the front. Make sure you keep your decision in psychic while gluing the piece together.

As you have the right to see, I offered a the majority of glue to adhesive the feather to the handle. Make sure that there is sufficient contact in between the glue and the 3D-printed part.
