Hello everyone, my local box store has the D3200 on clearance. What I'm wondering is, is it adequate for stop mo filming with Dragonframe? Here is the DF page on the D3200:…Continue

"That looks to me like a hand puppet, made out of raw foam. The crust looks like the edges of the foam were sealed and painted brown. The bulk of the lunch meat and tomatoes "look" real, but so little is seen it's hard to tell. It also…"

"Hmmmm, good question. I would think that contact adhesives might be the way to go, like Barge Cement or E6000, but I'm really just guessing. I know cosplayers use those glues to make their flexible costume parts. "

"You're welcome!  I did have some left over Tyvek so I spray glued some to another piece of the same duck cloth I used with the foil. It's more "robust"(?) than the aluminum foil, if I can use that word. The foil flexes and…"

"Thanks Nick, you gave me an idea, so I'm just thinking out loud here: I wonder if a combination of foil and foam might work? Foil in the areas where I want wrinkles and folds, like knees and elbows. Then a thin layer of foam in the areas that…"

"Another issue to consider: Real fabric will cause "noise" when shot because of the fabric hair shifted each time it is touch. Travis Knight of Laika explained how they solve it by coating the fabric with transparent silicone. "
