(German with English subtitles)
0:03 Hi internet and welcome to a new Episode of Ge[blogged] today with 0:07 another short crafting video 0:09 not really a tutorial, but more of 2 tips we have. 0:13 at that we show you 2 techniques how you can finish Kobracast Art 0:20 now we show you how to cover Kobracast Art with leather, fur and cloth 0:24 We have 2 examples how to achieve a nice finish 0:28 which work out pretty fast 0:31 The first technique is just about glueing pleather onto Kobracast Art 0:36 that's pretty easy, lets watch! 0:40 First we bend a piece of Kobracast Art into a rounded shape 0:44 for more basics about Kobracast click here! 0:48 then we spread Pattex Glue around the edges of the side that goes onto the leather 0:54 On the other side we just spread the glue on the edges that we fold over next 0:59 Because we need to hold them for a short time until the glue has dried a bit 1:04 Then we fold the leather around the edges and apply pressure 1:09 Now hold it until it dried a bit and then we glue on the next part 1:57 in between you can cut away the leftovers 2:03 so you can fold it neatly 2:09 and this wraps up this technique! 2:14 You can see that it stays flexible and looks pretty good 2:27 as told, this was pretty easy 2:30 and most of you knew about this kind of finish 2:32 But we wanted to do a complete walkthrough of finishing techniques 2:36 so this needed to be included 2:39 But the following is one technique most of you don't know about 2:42 Kobracast can be sewn with a sewing machine! 2:48 it's easier than you think but you need to watch some details 2:52 We will show you on another example. Here we go! 2:57 We take a piece of cotton cloth and pin it onto the Kobracast Art 3:02 Like we on a normal sewing process 3:04 It's easier when you hit the holes of the Kobracast Art 3:10 otherwise it's getting difficult to punch the pins through. 3:27 while sewing you need to set a low thread tension, otherwise the thread 3:32 will rip a lot. 3:35 And you should sew very slowly because sometimes you will hit the solid parts 3:40 of the Kobracast Art. 3:43 then you need to move the piece a tiny bit and you can sew on. 4:21 You see that you still can fit the bracer around your arm 4:24 And you could easily add straps and buckle. 4:28 You see it's a really easy way to a good finish. 4:36 So it's basically a really hard fusible web 4:40 but it has some advantages of it's own 4:45 you could form armor out of Kobracast and still put it under the sewing 4:50 machine because it stays flexible 4:52 Or you want to build a Leather armor and don't want to spend a fortune 4:56 on real thick leather. 4:59 You could do 2 layers of Kobracast and than add some pleather. 5:07 and it will look like a real leather armor. 5:11 It's light weight, cheap and looks perfect! 5:18 The same procedure is applicable for everything with fur! 5:22 which's making a furry costume much more comfortable 5:27 because of the wide texture of Kobracast Art it's super breathable 5:32 which means that if you put on a furcoated Armor or something similar 5:37 you won't sweat as much. 5:41 that's one of my favourite aspects of this material because 5:45 it delivers such a fine foundation for costumes like leather armors 5:49 or furry costumes. 5:53 But this is the end of this episode 5:56 we learned a lot about all the possible finishes of Kobracast Art 6:00 Which means this was the last of this short tutorials 6:04 We contine with the longer Prop tutorials that Ge[Bastelt] is known for 6:24 Until then, have a good time!
