Wrought iron gates

Started this discussion. Last reply by Maureen Z Mar 6. 8 Replies

Here's a pic of some gates I have just finished for my film. They are about 200mm high and made using thin aluminium bent rather like full-size wrought iron, and glued with superglue. Frames are in…Continue

Eyebrow paddles

Started this discussion. Last reply by Simon Tytherleigh Feb 3. 2 Replies

I wonder if I can tap the collected SMA brains on the subject of eyebrow paddles, which I am not doing too successfully just now.I have used T shaped paddles with a little bit of epoxy putty on the…Continue

Using cushion foam with silicone

Started this discussion. Last reply by Simon Tytherleigh Oct 1, 2018. 8 Replies

I meant to do this some time ago, but here is the result of my little experiment.The problem: silicone can be very heavy and bounces back into position when it is quite thick. There is a silicone…Continue

Started this discussion. Last reply by Greyguy Feb 9. 6 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

"This is intruiging, you are right. So presumably there's a shot done with a fisheye lens that gets composited onto the doorknob, and Jack's hand then comes in to grab it? Such a great idea for a shot!"

"Any pics? I would think the main challenge is getting enough tension in the joints so they don't flop all over the place. "

"I used some K&S aluminium sheet, I think it said .016" on the wrapper. This is thicker and more rigid than foil. I cut it using a knife and bent it round some needle-nosed pliers. Gluing was with gel superglue, and I spray painted it all…"

"Simon This gate just looks super!   What kind of aluminum did you use?  A hardware product?  And what was your cutting and shaping technique?"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Count Croc's discussion Best cameras
"And don't forget the shutter count! Stop motion involves thousands of shutter releases, so you want to buy a camera with a low shutter count, definitely less than 10k. The expected life of an entry-level camera is around 50k shutter releases,…"

"Thanks for your kind comments. I absolutelywill be dirtying and making them look like they are not toylike. I haven't even done any of the ground yet. In my excitement I thought I would post them up, as they came out better than I expected!"

Strider replied to Simon Tytherleigh's discussion Wrought iron gates
"Those really do look great!! Are you planning to dirty them up a little bit for realism? Otherwise things can tend to look toylike, unless of course that's the aesthetic you're going for. "

"Thanks for the comments. Geoff, I will add some lichen and foliage. You are right that it adds so much as well as giving a bit more 3 dimensionality. I'll have a look for the railway foliage, thanks for the tip. The gates are held on hinges…"

Geoff Clark replied to Simon Tytherleigh's discussion Wrought iron gates
"Hi Simon,  Really top-notch! They look regal and fancy, like walling off an institution or a manor home. Is that what you were looking to achieve? Do they open with a hinge?   You didn't ask for any improvements, so if you don't…"

Wrought iron gates

Here's a pic of some gates I have just finished for my film. They are about 200mm high and made using thin aluminium bent rather like full-size wrought iron, and glued with superglue. Frames are in 3mm plasticard. Walls are MDF covered in papier mache pulp and tooled to give the stone effect. The coat of arms is actually my family crest!See More
