Halloween Hand : my first halloween stopmotion

Started by DoubleG in YOUR STOPMO FILM PROJECT. Last reply by DoubleG on Wednesday. 2 Replies

Dear all,I finally (and still on time for Halloween) finished my Halloween themed animation. For years I wanted to make one, this year I had the focus and an idea. But it was quite a struggle I can tell you  I was perhaps a bit over ambitious in what I wanted and I had some problems with the clay staining the paper background. Furthermore I noticed some focus issues when I was finished animating. The hand failed at a point, a finger broke and the clay cracked at a certain point. But .. I still think it is a nice little clip to watch and I learned a lot making it. So any comments or pointers for further improvement or even maybe small compliments  all comments are welcome!Cheers DoubleGContinue

Better ways to paint Platsil Gel 10 ?

Started by Frej Bengtsson & Stellan Rutstam in CASTING. Last reply by Doug Henderson on Sunday. 23 Replies

Howdy y'all!I'm having some difficulties with painting Platsil Gel 10, I was recommended as a cheap solution to buy regular oil colors mixed with silicone. To thin it out I used a small bottle of chemical clean heptane/gasoline. But I'm not satisfied with the look,the substance is to sticky (see the picture)Any other ideas or ways to get a persistent paintjob done over platsil gel 10 silicone? would be greatly appreciatedContinue

Documentary on Claymation Pioneer Will Vinton

Started by Marq Evans in ANIMATOR TALK. Last reply by Marq Evans on Sunday. 6 Replies

Hi everyone,I hope I'm not intruding here, but my name is Marq Evans and the director of a new documentary project called WELCOME TO MY DAYDREAM about the father of Claymation, Will Vinton. Will and his studio are the creators of the California Raisins, the Noid, the PJ's, Red and Yellow M&M's just to name a few.I wanted to introduce my film to the stopmotionanimation.com community, and let you know we have just launched a Kickstarter campaign to help complete the film. The campaign has all kind of cool rewards like access to the film before it's available to the public, Will Vinton-approved mustache wax and even custom Claymation-style figures that look like you or a loved one.Thanks for allowing me to introduce the film and campaign. You can check it out in more detail here: http://kck.st/2kiQqvpI hope you like what you see and will consider making a pledge or sharing it with your friends. Thanks all, let me know if you have any questions or want to chat about the project!Continue

Marble Track 3 Construction

Started by Rob Nugen in YOUR STOPMO FILM PROJECT on Sunday. 0 Replies

This is my first stop motion video. The characters in the video have a project in mind, but I am not sure how exactly to get there, much less how to make an interesting story out of it. They just finished the first segment of marble track.I've got a long way to go, but it's been fun to build so far!At the time I post this, the video has no audio, and is made up of four clips which you can view in sequence here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-KjsYc4Mb5g&index=1&list=PL0osPGt21FB48UwuhtCUoi9JndC9YDHAZContinue

Clay that glows under black light

Started by Don Carlson in CLAY. Last reply by Don Carlson Oct 13. 4 Replies

Hi folks, been tinkering with some UV-reactive pigments, and finally got something working.I give you... Puppet Putty GLOW!The lighting is just a novelty Halloween party bulb, so this would work better under a true black light, which can be simulated by taking out the visible frequencies to get this: Blue is not possible yet, but I can make it in Yellow, Orange, Red, Red-Orange, Pink, and Toy Green. Even if you don't do much with clay, maybe you could use it for special effects? There are clays like this, but they don't melt. This one does, and you can pour it into silicone molds for more options. :DContinue
