EVA foam helmets

Started this discussion. Last reply by Simon Tytherleigh Nov 21, 2017. 3 Replies

I thought I would add a couple of pics on here to show some helmets I have made from 2mm EVA foam. They are glued together with contact adhesive, then coated with thinned PVA to fill the texture and…Continue

Sudden camera shutdown

Started this discussion. Last reply by Simon Tytherleigh May 4, 2017. 7 Replies

Anyone got any suggestions on this issue?My Canon T3i (600d) occasionally shuts down for no apparent reason during animating. It's not doing the going to sleep action, which is accompanied by a…Continue

Started Dec 30, 2016 0 Replies

Has anyone experience of using silicone on hair and costumes, like they did for KUBO? Any tips? Anyone from LAIKA able to share your technique?I tried brushing some coloured Platsil gel 10 onto some…Continue

First test for DIY moco rig

Started this discussion. Last reply by Simon Tytherleigh Sep 30, 2016. 16 Replies

At long last I have finally got my moco rig working, thanks to a busy weekend with Roos Mattaar. It's a 6 axis rig with a crane arm and a 1.5m track. Connecting everything up has been quite a…Continue

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Mark Blann's discussion Clothing or Silicone?
"Silicone is quite heavy so using it just for exposed flesh is quite a good idea. There are some other threads on this site with lots of tips for painting silicone. It's not so much that it is tricky, more that you have to mix it up yourself.…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to tam hinton's discussion best material for body forms
"Pre made solid blocks? That would be wood then. Balsa is too weak, but pine is ok. Have you looked at Polymorph? It is a removable plastic that is great for doing shapes and sets pretty firm."

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Ursula Hitler's discussion 3D pen with flexible filaments to make puppets?
"The pen instructions just mention PLA and ABS as the plastics it can melt and extrude. The filament does not describe itself as flexible, just 1.75mm PLA. The big reel I bought is the same flexibility as the sample stuff that came with the pen. If…"

"Well done, and good luck with the premiere! What you have shared looks so stylish and beautiful, you deserve awards!"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Momo's discussion Need help with supply listis
"Hi there. Your list looks good apart from the Chavant clay. You only need one block of this stuff, as it can be reused. I had a look on Amazon.com and a single block seems to be offered at about $20. Wire choice: You might need some 2mm dia wire for…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Ursula Hitler's discussion 3D pen with flexible filaments to make puppets?
"Hi there. The pen I have, which is not the most basic, has an adjustment for flow, so the plastic extrudes faster or slower. Haven't played with this yet, but I expect it will afford more control. The filament I am using is PLA, and this is a…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Ursula Hitler's discussion 3D pen with flexible filaments to make puppets?
"I got a 3D pen for Christmas, with the intention of making things like tree branches and little props, and although I have not used it much so far, it looks to be very good for that. I did some nice rough branches for the inside of a thatched roof,…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Suraya's discussion What Type of Sillicone? Silicone and Expanding Foam
"I haven't tried silicone and expanding foam, but I don't see why it wouldn't work. Latex and foam work very nicely when done in this way, and the foam sticks to the latex with no problem. I suspect it might not adhere to the silicone,…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to emmyymme's discussion K & S tubing in armature?
"Denting is easily overdone. I also use a bit of temporary sticky like wax to give it enough hold."

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Joe's discussion Animate tree growing
"Might be worth considering using a 3d pen to create the tree. There are some YouTube videos showing trees being made this way. But it wouldn't really show it growing, as the trunk would remain the same height, unless you pushed it up from the…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to DimensionalAnimator's discussion Camera Crane
"I couldn't really understand your sketch, but here's some thoughts on making a crane. I am assuming you mean something that can move the camera vertically. Ideally you need a ballscrew or leadscrew. Then to turn it you might use a belt…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Kevin Stratton's discussion Professional Production Rigging with Berkey Systems
"Looks like great gear, at a great price. I suppose if one does not mind using 15mm rods as opposed to the 6mm in Berkey's system, the clamps etc sold for camera rigs might do the job as well. There are a lot of Chinese versions on eBay at…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Gavin A's discussion Best Editing Software
"I spent a long time trying to understand how different programs worked, and was also constantly going to video tutorials, so you are not alone. Persevere, because it does all suddenly become easier. One of the things it took me a while to get to…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to David Braga's discussion injecting silicone
"Hi David. I have injected silicone into moulds, although mostly I do the overfill method. The injection method requires the armature to be fixed in place and needs air escape holes. I used large 50ml syringes with wide nozzles (from Mole Valley…"
