Model Behavior: Miniature Smoke Effects

Kayte and Norm experiment with a technique for creating smoke effects for our miniature model builds, using simple cotton batting and some paint. For creating smoke at this scale, we sculpt the cotton and trim it to work with our models and give it some volume. It’s a fun effect that we’re going to keep on using!

  1. Please find a way to link the previous videos in builds like this. I don’t always have time to stay up to date on every video but I would like to start at the beginning of the project when something catches my eye. Always love the builds and new techniques, you guys are great.

  2. I agree, one tip that I might offer until they’ve developed a system to link the associated videos… once I find a series I like, it’s usually pretty easy to just do a search on the Tested website for the series by name & who’s involved, *Model Behavior* or *Model Kits Norm Kayte* but yes, Tested Admins, a better system of grouping these serial videos is definitely in order and would be greatly appreciated!
