I'm going to be doing some travelling for an extended period. Techwise I'll have my ipad mini in tow. Given the massive compromise in this hardware, can anyone offer an opinion on stop motion apps I might want along for the ride should inspiration and time permit? I have imotion HD but have recently discovered istopmotion for ipad which allows importing of audio with view able waveforms over the timeline. It also apparently supports 1080p. I recognize this will not be anything resembling a pro…See More

Anna Glanton replied to Steve Walther's discussion Brush on Silicone?

Sean O'Hara replied to Steve Walther's discussion Positionable eyes in sculpy head...
"Maybe I'm reading it wrong, but I don't see why you don't just build the head as normal with the beads imbedded/ encased in the Sculpey? It bakes at a low enough temperature that most beads shouldn't have any issues."

Positionable eyes in sculpy head...

I'm building a cartoony robot puppet out of sculpey and am trying to figure out how to work in the eyes such that they are possitionable. Best I can come up with is building it in two halves with the beads sandwiched between. I guess I'll need to line the sockets with rubber or something to hold the beads in place when positioned. I'm trying to avoid an "open" socket look like a skull otherwise I'd just stick them in place with a little plasticine. Anyone try anything like this? Thanks in…See More
