This aluminum foil and foil tape engraving technique is something I have never seen before. I hope I learned this in high school. Aluminum foil can be easily woven and shaped into a lightweight sculpture. Put a layer of aluminum foil tape on it and they become very stiff and strong. If you need strength, the sculpture can use a wire bracket. If you compress the foil as much as possible with a hammer, it will form a very dense shell. In a solid mold, a mold that can withstand a light hammer should be able to make a lot of things that people need, or to make art projects. I hope that the creation of art can enter the daily life of more people. This is a simple medium of sculpture. It\'s also very light in weight, so the finished items can be hung up and displayed from the top of the head or made them out of the way. Depending on the weather, it can withstand outdoor use. I think of a parabolic reflector. I\'m still trying to figure it out. In this structure, you will see a variety ( Mostly unfinished) Projects completed with this technology; Puppet heads, building models, tool handle fixes, relief textures, and other things. This is a simple and universal technology. Try it; you\'ll like it. If you are going to make a wire rack skeleton with an iron wire, you need the wires and pliers used to cut and bend it. To use foil and tape, you need scissors to cut off the foil tape and a light hammer to tap the foil to make it stronger. Foil tape is equipped with paper backing and you have to peel off from the sticky side of the tape. I hung the tape down from the top of the head so I could roll it down easily. Peel the end of the foil layer, cut it off with scissors, and don\'t cut the paper with it. You don\'t have to start a new peeling. Each tape you use has a long note. After putting down a layer of tape, you should press the tape down with something. One of my favorite tools is an old, shabby paint brush with bristles curled up for abuse. Small friction, uniform pressure distribution. Wood carving tools are also very useful. Hot glue is also useful sometimes. The project was done on my own body with the help of two friends with six layers of foil tape. I\'m using sacrifice T. The shirt between the tape and my body. The cloth folds on the shirt are absorbed by rolling and tying them to the shirt. Draw the part line on T- A shirt with sand skin The tape is applied to the line on the front and back, but does not cross the line. After finishing, it is easy to cut some of the wire with scissors. Then reconnect the first half and the second half with more tape. On the inside of the waist, neck and arm holes, an reinforcing ring of aluminum foil and adhesive tape is added to make them harden. To match the CD mask I made, the mannequin needs to make a CD mosaic costume. Melt Glue and yarn have the upper hand During the construction of the shirt, put down the pieces together. After removal, you can see the beautiful color of the CD mosaic. The instructable at the back may introduce it in more detail. I need some mini. I\'m making sets for some puppet movies. This is a cool way to make. Twist a string of galvanized wire together to make a suitcase. When the branch goes to one side, the main bundle is separated, and each part of the bundle is twisted together to form a branch. New wires can be added when needed. With the splitting of the bundle, the diameter of the branch decreases as in the real tree. At this point, the leaves just bend the wires. I might dip them in the glue and stick them to the leaves. ( Photo puppet head) These were two early experiments with puppet heads. They use tightly condensed foil on the plastic sleeve, which keeps the finger hole open. Now, I prefer to make finger holes with carpet material, and the carpet hair is facing towards the fingers. The grip on the fingers is more comfortable than the plastic sleeves. I haven\'t figured out which paint I want to use on aluminum yet. A few days ago, a tourist used the artist acrylic resin and they seemed to stick well. Hot glue sticks well to the foil. Add- On the shape and plug of the filling hole, the hot melt can be glued in the appropriate position, and then the joint is overlapped with adhesive tape. This joint is very strong. Where a little shape needs to be removed, usually just a few Hammers need to be tapped to compress the foil more- And another layer of tape to hide the Micro The wrinkles you just made For its strength, wire is sometimes needed in the rotor. The dome is the building model I\'m working on. The wire rack supports the tape housing, which together form reusable molds for the manufacture of removable aluminum dome housing. I may leave the aluminum shell in place before I finish the photography needs. Then, if needed, I will remove it in sections to make more aluminum shells using the same wire rack mold. To make this dome shape, I started with 4 feet. Plywood diameter round for fixing the end of a medium size wire with snuggle holes that go through the bottom a few inches. I support it in such a way that I can keep the ends of the wires straight. Later, hang it from the top of the head, and several taps on the hammer knock the plywood off the end of the wire. Then the end is bent inward at 90 degrees, forming a reinforcement rib around the edge. I wrapped it several times with waxed lines and added the intersection of the main line ( The kind used with leather stitching awl) Thread with lock with a small amount of hot melt adhesive. No knot tying -- Just packaging and glue. It\'s faster, easier and cleaner. The finer-diameter metal wire sheet is woven inside and outside the mesh of the larger metal wire, as in basket weaving. The form of each added line becomes stronger. When I struggled too much to install new wires, I stopped. The ends of the thin lines are just bent around the larger wires to lock on them. Make sure the cut wire tip is securely hidden inside. This wire grid technology without foil layer is a good way to display the layout The relationship in the building model because of its transparency. This is half the cement. The head mold I used to make the lamp Some of my sculptures have a weight foil core inside. As an experiment, I hammer a lot of foil into a dense shell, and I was very surprised how hard it became when it was covered with tape. These two photos are photos of the machete handle repair and texture experiment. The wooden handle of the machete was split and loose. The missing pieces are filled with wadded and hammered foil. Everything was covered with tape. It runs well all the time. The texture experiment just beats a layer of foil on some organic materials and fishing nets. I would probably use this technique to get ground textures in a puppet photography landscape.
