Kobracast Art Wood Glue Finish
(German with English subtitles)
0:04 Hi Internet and welcome to a new episode! Again with Boris 0:17 Today we want to show you a lot of different 0:20 Possibilities to finish Kobracast Art and other Thermoplastics! 0:25 with that I will now throw in some words and Boris will tell you more! 0:30 Wood Glue Finish! 0:32 You can use the wood glue finish to seal off Kobracast Art 0:39 Like a filler material but in the end with a thick layer which you can sand 0:44 for a clean and smooth finish. Cheap and easy! 0:54 Yeah, we showed you previously the big weaving of Kobracast Art 1:00 and this is a cost-effective way that you can easily get in your 1:05 DYI-Store. Thats why we start with that one. 1:11 Next is the finish with paper and glue 1:13 it's similar to paper-maché. just add paper and then wood glue. 1:19 This is a very fast method for a clean finish. 1:27 the drawback with this technique is that it's not as easy to sand. 1:34 -For me that sounds a little bit like elementary school! 1:38 This is really used in theatric scenery?? 1:41 -Yes of course! Only because it's easy does'nt mean 1:48 that it's just for kids! 1:55 Next one is "Harto Plast" 1:57 This is a professional filler material 2:02 on a synthetic basis. It stays flexible after it dries. 2:07 the drawback is that its very expensive because you can only buy it in 2:13 higher quantities. 2:23 -This is a more exotic way to finish. But I really like it! 2:28 So when you plan to do something really big and you want a near perfect finish 2:33 i would recommend getting this stuff. 2:37 Because you can only get it in 15 KG packages it doesn't really pay off 2:43 for smaller projects. 2:47 Leather, cloth, fur! 2:49 -you can handle all of that very similar 2:52 You have the advantage that you can sew Kobracast Art! 3:00 Or you can glue it onto the material 3:05 and the advantage is that it stays very breathable! 3:16 Which is a pretty nice bonus with this material! 3:23 Even with artificial leather you get much more comfort. 3:29 and another one: Spray filler! 3:31 this is pretty exotic because it's a bit expensive 3:36 but the results are pretty great! It's a widely unknown product 3:39 but some people already tinker around with it and get awesome results 3:43 thats why we want to show it! 3:47 You see, we have a lot to come! too much for one tutorial.. 3:53 That's why we do multiple parts 3:56 But let's stop talking and start crafting! 4:03 First we take our Kobracast Art mask and cut it in half 4:08 so we can show you multiple finishes on one piece 4:14 click here if you want to see how we did the mask 4:17 After that we put another layer of Kobracast on the inside of the mask 4:24 Now we apply wood glue in thin layers to the surface 4:29 Spread it with a brush. the reason to use wood glue is 4:34 that it stays flexible after it dries 4:39 You'll need 5-10 layers to get a clean finish 4:44 the thinner the layer the cleaner the finish will be 4:50 every layer should dry for 3 hours 6:06 And this is how it looks after the 6th layer 6:08 just one more should be enough 6:18 and you also see that i prefer to spread it with my finger 6:24 it just gives me more control. 6:42 Another trick when it's dry: when the surface isn't smooth 6:49 just wet your fingers and stroke over the surface 6:54 the water liquefies the surface again and you can clean it up 7:00 I suggest doing this once all over the mask for a nice finish 7:05 You probably can't see it well, but my finger is full of glue again. 7:10 you could also sand it but it's way harder then just doing it with water 7:16 Well once you painted it and spot an unevenness you need to sand it 7:22 and now the test paint job 7:30 as you can see it's a pretty smooth and clean finish 7:50 Up here we left the corner without glue to show you the difference 7:55 and all of that with some wood glue that cost's less then 5 Euro 8:01 of course you can choose a matte finish, too. or just use a matte varnish! 8:05 But that's the end of this Episode 8:07 let us know if you liked it! See you next time!
