It’s just Adam and Norm this week as we find a window in the schedule to podcast while Adam’s in production for his next show. Adam talks about his experience getting his first tattoo and the thought process for its design. Plus, we discuss Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, though we’ll be saving the full spoilercast for when Will returns!
Kayte and Norm take miniature vehicles from past Model Behavior projects and augment them with a water base. Using Smooth-On Crystal Clear to make a base, we experiment with sculpting water effects using silicone caulking and Smooth-On’s Sil-Poxy.
Jen, Kayte, and Jeremy make a miniature model of the letters that Adam and Jen created for the 2016 SXSL festival held on the South Lawn of The White House.
This week, Darrell walks us through his process for 3D modeling Achilles’ sword inspired by the prop from the movie Troy. Using photo reference of the prop, Darrell explains how he creates a faithful replica that retains all the characteristics of the original!
We got back to the basics with an overview of the various kinds of paintbrushes you can use for modelmaking and painting props. Bill brings a selection of brushes and we demo each type, showing the techniques that make the best use for each. What are your favorite brushes to use for your projects?
We’re not in Vegas this week for CES, but we’re still keeping an eye on the big announcements in tech coming out of the show. From new VR headsets to TV technologies, we go over the news that we find most interesting. Plus, thoughts on Star Trek rumors, a new animated superhero show, and pinball news!
Bill Doran of Punished Props Academy is in our studio for a few days for projects, and brought along his modded Fallout Pip Boy 2000! Bill walks us through the upgrades he made for this kit, including a new static display, lights, and an integrated bluetooth speaker! (Watch Bill’s video about his mod here.)
Happy new year! Adam and the gang return to the cave to talk about their holiday break, the debut of Mythbusters Jr., rock climbing, and the pursuit of excellence in your craft. Plus, the lies we tell our children, and the lies our parents told us. Lots of fun stuff to kick off the year!
