COMPOST CORNER - CONKER DASH

"Remarkably fast-moving episodes, considering the subject matter!  Those were a heap of fun, nice work.  And, I guess,  thanks to the pirate who put them on the toob, I am not in the UK so I would never have seen them otherwise."

"Looking good Dana, you get a really good sense of scale in this pic as you are stood next to it. Interestingly, the Frankenweine Puppets are the same size. I think it's a really good size to work to (approx 30cm). "

"Hi Daniel, I suppose it all comes down to budget and size of set. We shoot a short series for CITV called Compost Corner on a 6ft x 4ft set. Here's our lighting rig: 1 x 300W Arri Key Light (the Sun) 1 x 300W Arri Fill Light (used with a large…"

Armatures look great, just ordered two ball joints to check size against a few of my sculpts, looking forward to getting them. Great work!

No problem, 

They have been posted. Joints can be filed/ground down to make thinner etc. We are currently working on a range of sizes so watch out for them. 

Cheers,

Wes

Has anyone cast from polyamide 3d prints?

Started by Joshua Liebling in CASTING. Last reply by Joshua Liebling on Thursday. 2 Replies

Polyamide plastic will apparently break down with water exposure, so this rules out gypsum molds. I'm curious if anyone here knows whether two-part silicone putty or other material would work with polyamide? I know this can be done with PLA. My end…Continue
