With these last few molds, the hardest part is done. I may follow this up with a rundown/wrap up video, but for now, there's not much else to say about working on the lantern. It's just gluing and painting from here. Maybe some fooling around with LEDs.

I had to glass over a lot of stuff and leave things maybe a little more vague than I should have, but if I didn't this would be a 30 minute video and I just don't have the time or the energy (let alone the harddrive space) to be making that kind of thing every week!

Also, sorry for making you look at my gross hands for this one. Seems I can't go a single day without scraping or cutting them in some stupid way which isn't even related to crafting stuff.

I think I've done enough videos where I exposit on the finer details of the casting and molding process, so from this point on, I think I might just gloss past that detail simply so I'm not adding 10 minutes or repetitive rambling onto every video.

This is just a short little one about prototyping and figuring out the best way to build the parts before I cast and duplicate them. Turned out to be a little trickier than I was planning. Even if it's not as interesting or informative, at least it's short, right?

A change in my personal schedule, as well as some failed prototyping almost kept me from sticking to my one video per week schedule.

Just a little update to keep the videos going on a semi-regular schedule. The gondola continues to shape up a little bit at a time.

(Bitchute fucked up the upload order again...)
I intended for this to be more about the planning process, but I ended up with a lot to say about reference images, I guess. Gave me an excuse to use the video capture features on the PS4 also

(well, so much for uploading everything in proper order)
Even after lots of editing, this one still came out kind of long. Guess I had more to say than I expected. This time, all about doing math to figure out how big things need to be when you go to replicate them. It's a little bit lowtech compared to other techniques, but that makes it easier to do for less experienced propmakers and cosplayers.

With this, we wrap up my 2nd mold making project and cover the difficulties of trying to spray paint a bunch of stuff in freezing temperatures. Be sure to watch the previous videos if you haven't already, and keep an eye on the channel for more announcements and new projects.

Due to my camera crapping out, this video ended up being much more about the planning process that goes into making a mold, rather than the making of the mold and the pouring of the silicone. Even though my camera is likely going to be out of commission for a number of weeks, videos will continue!

Well... This could have gone better. Maybe Immortalizing my mistakes will stop them from happening again. Probably not.

For now, the mold does a good job now that I've worked out a lot of the kinks, but that doesn't mean that there's not more embarassing failures for me to share. Expect another video, maybe 2, on the Gondola in the near future. Things are going to get... sticky.

I did say at least 1 video a week, right? Oh well. Here's another one. May have sped this one up just a little too much, though.

The first mold I make for the Goblin Slayer mini was a huge learning experience for me. For a started project I decided to build on a whim, it was also fairly successful and made it seem like there might be something to this sculpting and molding thing. After so many castings, it started to wear down. Finer details ripped out of the mold, and eventually a large part of the mold itself ripped clean off.

So, after a few weeks of tweaking the original sculpt, rebuilding it, and prepping it, it was time to make a new mold. After toying with my recording rig and learning a bit more about video editing from the LBX Nightmare video, I needed to keep going with the video making. I think at least 1 video a week is the goal.

Also, I did something different for the music this time around. Instead of using some random music I had laying around, I used Magix Music Maker's built in song maker function to generate some music from the soundpools I had until I had enough to fill the video. I'm pretty happy with the results.

And, finally, the second part! This time with audio commentary about the process, what I'm doing, and the materials I used.

Just some weirdo who makes things and then makes videos about making things. Maybe you'll find my stuff educational or remotely entertaining.
