I've made a mold for my robot hands, I'm just using whats quick and and available so it's made out of silicone.  Probably not ideal as its going to be a silicone on silicone mold, but I'm assured that as long as I spray on lots of J wax (or whatever release agent in the cupboard) it should be okay.I didn't mix some of the catalyst into the silicone well enough so it didn't go off.  Luckily one of the more experienced maintenance crew was able to save it (you can see the colour difference in the…See More

"Glad you like him!  I'm going to miss the rusty look but I'm moving the setting into outer space, so it makes sense.  It's also kind of a pilot for a children's series idea, although I'm treating more as a stand…"

"Cute little guy just as he is!  And making something worn and rusted adds character, as well as letting you get away with a quicker and rougher build.  I hope the new version isn't too pristine, and still has some of that character.…"

We're just winding down on a new series at work and its becoming unusually quiet, so I came up with a really simple idea for a short mini series.  The idea was to make it as simple as possible, one set and a couple of easy to make characters.My idea was about a robot and a crab living on a small remote island, so I quickly mocked up the robot character.…See More

"My problem is not the online availability, it is that I live in a rural area with rubbish broadband. It is often only possible to watch YouTube videos about 5 seconds at a time. I might try to watch the film one night when I can't sleep. 2am we…"

"I hope this is another sign that DVDs are dead. It cost me $2 to rent. If I wanted to watch it again in my lifetime, I could rent it again many times before spending more than it would cost to own. I have a small collection of stop-motion films on…"

"Ouch! It's 40 Euros to ship within Europe. How heavy is a DVD???"

StopmoNick replied to Steve Boot's discussion O Apostolo online
"I looked on their site and found where I could order the DVD at a very reasonable 10 Euro - I would pay up to 20 or 25 E. But shipping to Rest of the World is 45 Euro, which unfortunately is a deal breaker. So I may have to look at the pay per view…"
