    Best resin for Jurassic Park amber

    This is actually more tricky to find than you'd think. Because a lot of so called transparent resins cure to a yellow tint. When looking around check for descriptions like "glass finish". Transparent doesn't always mean clear.

    Bad Boba Fett

    Looks pretty great to me. What year was it?

    Jurassic Park John Hammond Cane

    Sorry I missed this comment before. I don't know that I have a trick for it. I too have some float away on me. I probably 1 out of 10 that I make I don't like. Just make sure the resin is at least tacky when you put the bug in the spot you want. Maybe I'll make a video of my process. If I get...

    Jurassic Park John Hammond Cane

    I sell a bunch with a metal rod down the middle to add extra support for people who want to use it as an actual cane. They seem to like it. The only problem with it is the egg. If it falls on concrete there is a chance it will snap off. To try and counter this all my new eggs have a much larger...

    Jurassic Park John Hammond Cane

    Thanks. Since it's real wood it's easy to naturally weather it because the dirtiness can get into the grains and it looks real. Also when I'm turning it I deliberately don't make it as best as I could. That is, it's not completely sanded and each segment is not measured in diameter for...

    Unlimited Run Jurassic Park John Hammond Cane

    I am, but I'm about a week behind right now. Also, I actually make a version now with a metal rod down the center (looks the same) just to add stability. And I also make 5 different sizes (30, 32, 34, 36 and 38). 36 is the standard. I make the different size because some people are using it as...

    This is false. Sorry I would have replied earlier but Taptalk just notified me with this last message and I didn't know about this until now. He is definitely correct in that he didn't receive his order it seems. I had it marked that it shipped back in November. Honestly I'm not sure why it...

    Star Trek Discovery Phaser by Anovos

    That's been my point since the beginning of this thread. A $550 3D printed prop. Which ultimately takes years to arrive. Small claims them I really think is the way to go. The class action that is already out there is fine too. This is a company who flat out refuses to do customer service or...

    Star Trek Discovery Phaser by Anovos

    Why would anyone sing their praises? It's one thing to give a company a second chance but this far beyond that. But I've been a low man on them for a long time. You can't continue to run a business on a pre-order funding model. That's a huge red flag for me. There are plenty of independent...

    Unlimited Run Jurassic Park John Hammond Cane

    Really sorry for the delays on a couple of these. I've been trying to work on some improvements on them like adding a metal rod for support down the shaft and reworking the egg slightly. The couple that are left are going out this week. I've also been working on a version that can split into...

    Looking for Luke's Green Milk Bottle from Ahch-To. Any ideas?

    Awesome thread. I'm finishing up my Last Jedi Luke and this helped me a lot. Now I just need to figure out with alcoholic concoction I'm going to fill it with for Dragon*Con. I'm thinking a Midori Mai Tai? Or a White Russian with green food coloring. I'd be more than happy to take suggestions lol

    mk2workshop top gun helmet

    I wouldn't trust a site that uses Comic Sans...I kid, I kid... I'm my opinion, when I'm not sure about a site i always contact them first. If they are quick to reply and seem nice i feel a lot better about it. In collecting prop replica stuff most of the time it's just some guy/artist building...

    Spaceship Cockpit ideas for Short Film

    Hoes have great advice for prop building. In their line of work they have to get their sets together quickly on a small budget :) But yes, hoses would have made more sense.

    Spaceship Cockpit ideas for Short Film

    With that sort of budget you can gather most of the stuff on amazon. Grad a kit or button and joysticks like this: https://www.amazon.com/Gamelec-Players-Joysticks-Controller-Rapsberry/dp/B076HLLT4Z/ref=sr_1_21_sspa?keywords=raspberry+pi+buttons&qid=1559937782&s=gateway&sr=8-21-spons&psc=1 Hoes...
