Do you ever do a video on how to design a costume from 40 K for a work warm body you do that will look a Maysey


I always learn something new with your videos!!!


Do you take suggestions? it'd be really cool to see Alyx Pistol from Half Life Alyx

Just like the chain sword you did, that looks so badass!. Love the way you describe what paint & what painting techniques you using, no other prop maker does that. Keep up the awesome work bro, love the channel!

I always enjoy watching and learn from your content

Awesome, as always. Watched through a second time and took notes. Ten layers of paint. Holy snap! Sometimes I wish I didn't have a job so I could just sit home and do this full time. Ah, well. I'll retire in five years. I will start painting first thing in the morning. And yes, doesn't Missouri weather suck? My paint shop is poorly insulated and I have a hell of a time keeping things warm enough to get painted.

Your painting techniques are super satisfying and mesmerizing. The way you layer your paint is amazing to me and really brings your props to another level. Well done!

Dave Adams

I tried your HD foam and must say it was a joy to work with from sanding, burning and gluing!!!!!

Benjamin Hegtvedt

David Gray

Amazing as always. Your paint works always sets these apart, it's incredible.
