Have you ever wanted to build a castle but didn’t know how? I was doing a search on the internet for stained glass window patterns because with my new Versa-Tool I can solder and it says you can make stained glass windows. I was thinking a regular piece of glass, maybe like from a picture frame and maybe Plexiglas or something. Put it in a frame then make shapes with wire or something and solder it to the glass then use that gel paint to add in the colors and texture. Viola you got stained glass.
But I found this instead. It’s a website that has these molds you can buy or they teach you how to make your own molds. You buy or make the molds then you pour either plaster of paris (which is cheap but chips easily) or the more recommended dental stone into the molds and you let it dry and it pops right out of the rubbery molds. Then once you have all of your (let’s just say) bricks hardened and out of the molds, just bake it and it’s all dry and ready to build your castle.
They have detailed instructions on how to do everything like putting the bricks together to form a building and how to glue it all in place and how to paint it all with 3 different colors so it looks authentic. There are videos too.
It’s not just castles, it’s also regular houses and space ships too. It’s really cool. If this is your hobby, like building little houses for your train sets and stuff (like Alec Baldwin in Beetlejuice) then you’ll love this website. You can just use your own imagination and build whatever you want.
The molds are not that bad in price if you think about the time it takes this guy to make the molds and the cost of the materials for the molds plus the very fact that he took the time and talent to make all the items that you make from these molds you are saving a lot by buying them from him. I’m really thinking about buying a mold here and there as I get money for it. Then just make tons of stuff and put them in buckets as if they are Lego’s so when I’m ready to make something I have them all ready-made.
