Books

My closest companion on these endeavors is my camera and it gets a lot of use documenting my results – mostly in the form of pictures, but occasionally I take the time to make a Video. Over the years we released several books to teach you how to improve your skills. The first volume was released in 2014 and focuses on Horns and Headdresses made out of thermoplastic materials. Volumes 2 and 3 are a little bit  more complex and teaches you how to work with silicone, casting resin and how to make hoof-shoes and everything else you need for making a Faun costume. Our newest book is all about animated LEDs.
