Kobracast Art Paper and Glue Finish
(German with English subtitles)
0:03 Hi internet and welcome to a new episode of Ge[Blogged] and a new crafting video. 0:29 We will show you another part of our basic tutorial line about finishes. 0:35 If you remember i met with Boris from Cast4Art last year and we did a lot of tutorials but 0:41 I just uploaded one of those. 0:44 Now comes the next one! 0:47 This time about coating with paper & glue. 0:51 This technique is very similar to the Wood glue finish but has some advantages and drawbacks 0:56 that makes it different. 1:00 First we show you how to do it and then we talk about the pros and cons of this technique 1:06 First Step: tear a newspaper apart and throw it into water. 1:12 that was easy. 1:15 after the newspaper is sodden we put it piece by piece into the wood glue and after that 1:22 and after that onto the Mask. 1:25 Be careful that you don't put any wrinkles into the Newspaper 1:30 this could be the only source for unevenness in this kind of finish. 1:36 Also try to overlap the edges of the newspaper onto each other. 2:54 Repeat this step 2-3 times. 2:57 2 times should be enough in most cases, but the more layers you do the more durable it gets! 3:03 Instead of a newspaper you can use packaging paper as well. 4:14 After all layers are applied we let it dry for about a day. 4:20 And now we already start with the final step. 4:23 Similar to the wood glue finish we apply thin layers of wood glue, 4:26 either with a brush or with your finger. 4:31 Don't worry about the texture of the brush leaving dents in 4:35 the finish, the glue is liquid enough to straighten itself out before drying. 4:40 Repeat this for 2-3 layer, but let every single layer dry before you put on the next one. 4:46 layer dry before you put on the next one. 4:52 We only did 2 layers because the second one is pretty thick. 4:59 Sadly that led to bubbles in the surface as you can see in a moment. 5:17 Those kinds of bubbles aren't that bad. 5:21 Just take some wet sandpaper or a sanding sponge and sand the surface, 5:28 the wood glue gets liquid again and the bubbles disappear. 5:34 After that you can wipe the glue smooth. 6:01 After letting it dry again we put on the paint and can watch the result! 6:17 You can see that the result is pretty clean and smooth 6:20 and in comparison to the glue finish it looks identically. 6:26 but you'll notice the difference at touch. its a bit heavier and 6:30 more durable than the glue finish but its also less flexible. 6:36 Personally i like the wood glue finish more because 6:41 you have more control and can work 6:44 out more of the smaller details which won't work with the paper version. 6:50 But the paper & glue method has some benefits of it's own. 6:55 I.e. when you have bigger costume parts or props or even scenery parts. 7:04 it gets alot more durable. 7:07 It's cheaper than the glue finish 7:10 because newspaper and wood glue is cheaper than just wood glue. 7:16 It's way faster because you put on 3 layers at once 7:23 and let it dry as compared to the 6-8 layers that need to dry seperatly. 7:45 You don't have to use it exclusively on Kobracast Art! 7:50 You can use it on all the thermo plastics like Worblas Finest Art and Wonderflex or 7:58 you can finish your wooden props and even on expanding foam. 8:05 It's just paper it mixes well with everything! 8:09 That's it for this short episode and i hope you liked it. 8:13 If you have questions just leave a comment 8:15 and watch the info section below for more infos and 8:19 links to were to buy thermo plastics. 8:24 The rest is about some german award thingy thats not really relevant to the rest of the 8:35 world.. so don't bother and go craft some awesome stuff! 9:01 Next video will be another finishing tutorial but that's it for now! 9:07 I will see you next time!
